Discovering Christ

Discovering Christ 2019

St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is honored to present ChristLife!  The ChristLife: Discovering Christ program will begin Monday November 4th, 2019 at 6pm – 8:30pm in the St Francis Xavier cafeteria and will run for seven consecutive Mondays with a retreat on December 7th from 8am to 2:30pm and Mass at 4pm.    A typical session will open with a free meal and fellowship, followed by a dynamic teaching time, and finishing with a small group discussion.  Discovering Christ is a seven-week experience that invites every person, to encounter the love of God the Father, enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, reclaim our Confirmation, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children.  This program is perfect for EVERYONE – no matter where you are on your faith journey – from just starting out to experienced Catholics!  There is no charge (but free will donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of the food and the program).  It is pretty simple, but it can have a huge impact on your life.  Come discover (or re-discover!) Christ and our Church community in a whole new way!! You will leave with a rejuvenated soul and a new passion for living out Christ’s mission for you!
