What is ChristLife?
The ChristLifeTM Series is a three-step process that is changing lives and transforming parishes throughout the United States. It is a proven method of igniting new evangelization and creating a culture of sharing God’s love. ChristLife provides a great opportunity for Catholics and non-Catholics alike to encounter Jesus and to grow in relationship with Him. Discovering Christ began at St. Rita and Holy Trinity parishes last fall with over 160 people participating. We're doing it all over again starting in September, 2019
The ChristLife series consists of three sequential programs called Discovering Christ, Following Christ and Sharing Christ and is hosted jointly by Holy Trinity and Saint Rita parishes. Discovering Christ is the first of the three series and begins Sunday, September 22, 2019.
Be watching for more information in the coming weeks! Check back here for additional information about the program as it becomes available.
What is Discovering Christ?
Discovering Christ is our first seven-week experience starting Sunday, September 23. Anyone and everyone, from the baptized in the pews to the unchurched, is invited to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ. Discovering Christ helps people enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children. Discovering Christ will run for seven Sunday evenings plus a Saturday retreat and will begin this fall starting on Sunday, September 22, 2019. A typical evening session consists of four components:
- a shared meal
- song / prayer time
- a video teaching
- small group discussions.
