ChristLife Series: Discovering, Following, Sharing

The ChristLife Series is a three-step evangelization process that is changing lives and transforming parishes. The series consists of three essential elements: discover, follow, and share. The series is divided into three seven-week courses which build upon each other to introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His transforming love. Click here to learn more about the program and to sign up.


Holy Family Men of Faith

Men come together to study the richness of the Catholic faith and learn how to apply it to their daily lives to become better fathers, husbands, brothers, associates and Christian men.

The men gather for a light breakfast at 6 a.m. on Tuesdays in room 215, followed by a video presentation and discussion. All sessions end at 7:20 a.m. Ten to twelve sessions run from February through April and September through November. Regardless of when a session starts they are always open to new participants.
