What recommends the Christ Life Process?

 

The strengths of the program include:

  • Firmly rooted in Catholic evangelization, and  firmly rooted in Catholic evangelization, and the expressed intentions of our recent popes
  • adaptable for use with active and inactive Catholics
  • equips Catholics to be confident with their faith story, to: name it, claim it, tame it, aim it
  • a conversational approach, without unnecessary denominational jargon, which is consistent with how adult learners grow in faith
  • questions that encourage people to identify, clarify and explore faith
  • emphasizes the value of hospitality in community building
  • built around a discipling process: from discover Christ, to enjoy Christ, to follow Christ, and to share Christ
  • sessions are plug and play, capable of being offered: on campus, in homes or in a neutral setting 
  • video-based presentations with discussion materials can be easily replaced with live speakers 
  • accessible for groups of any size from 10 - 100

Who recommends the Christ Life Process?

 

 

 " We are called as Catholics to witness to the truth, that the fullness of life comes through friendship with Jesus Christ. Please consider using Discovering Christ to ignite faith in your parish, campus ministry or small group." - - Cardinal Edwin Frederick O'Brien

  

 "With great joy, I recommend ChristLife to parishes and dioceses looking to respond to the Church's urgent call to a New Evangelization." -Archbishop William Edward Lori

 

 

"I join Archbishop Lori and Cardinal O'Brien in my admiration for the Christ Life process.  Parishes can use this conversational approach in many ways to foster confident Catholics, who find joy in following Christ, and share that joy with others."  - Bishop Richard J. Malone
