YOU ARE INVITED TO CONTINUE TO GROW IN YOUR CATHOLIC FAITHWord on Fire
“I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day.
No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since ‘no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord.’” (Evangelii Gaudium, Joy of the Gospel, paragraph 3.)
Adult Faith Formation at Christ the King aims to nurture and challenge adults to explore our faith, experience community, and grow as mature adult Catholics.
LENTEN CHALLENGE: Following the Call of Christ – Journey to Conversion
In this film and study program, Bishop Robert Barron illuminates six biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through him. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one’s attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Its never been easier to join and grow in your faith!
Through Flocknote (an email and texting platform) we will send you the weekly short video clips to preview. Enjoy them in the comfort of your home, and then come join a small group discussion during Lent on either Tuesday evenings (beginning on March 3rd) with Catholic Fellowship from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Sister Joan’s Room or on Wednesday morning (beginning on March 4th) with the Woman s Group from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. — to have conversation, gain richness and understanding.
