What is ChristLife?
ChristLife equips Catholics for the essential work of evangelization so that all people might personally encounter Jesus Christ and be transformed into His missionary disciples.
The ChristLife Evangelization Process was developed as a relational way to make missionary disciples by helping people discover, follow, and share Jesus Christ. This helps our parish to answer the Church’s call for the New Evangelization through a proven method of parish evangelization and outreach. The ChristLife process has three 7 week courses:
- Discovering Christ which invites guests to hear the Good New and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Following Christ helps those who have completed Discovering Christ to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through the grace of God by praying together, teaching, and supporting one another in some of the basic disciplines and truths practiced by Christians since the early Church.
- Sharing Christ focuses on personal or friendship evangelization, sharing our relationship with Jesus in our daily encounters with people. The course helps to develop an attitude of the heart that moves us to be open to share the Good News we have experienced anytime and anywhere.
We hope you consider joining us in building a relationship with Jesus and spreading His Good News!
Saint Vincent Parish has been offering the ChristLife process since the fall of 2015. We continually offer the process throughout the year.
