Discovering Christ is a seven-week process of encountering Christ who awaits us in our stories. This program encourages Catholics to grow in faith, by sharing their faith, so that others may find faith in Christ.
In our day Jesus' command to 'go and make disciples' echoes in the changing scenarios and ever new challenges to the Church's mission of evangelization, and all of us are called to take part...
- Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
