 What is ChristLife?

ChristLife equips Catholics for the essential work of evangelization so the world might personally encounter Jesus Christ and be transformed into His missionary disciples. Our ministry partners with parishes, priests, clergy, religious and lay leaders who are seeking to answer the Church’s call for the New Evangelization through a proven method of parish evangelization and outreach. We developed the ChristLife Series to help all people discover, follow, and share Jesus Christ as members of the Catholic Church.​​

The ChristLife journey consists of 3 seven-week experiences ... these can all be experienced, or you can experience them at a rate better suited to you.

The 3 journeys traveled are:

  • Discovering Christ
  • Following Christ
  • Sharing Christ

Check out how the ChristLife Journey is changing lives​ in our Diocese of Greensburg!

 ChristLife at Our Parish

Why did God create me?
    Where did I come from?
           Where am I going?
                 Why am I here?

​​Our Parish began the journey in 2014 and approximately 90 people have traveled along with us.​Life is full of questions & God understands this, even in Scripture the question is asked of us:   "What are you looking for?"  (John 1:38)

The answer should be simple: Jesus Christ and our relationship with Him.  But what does that answer mean?

We would like to invite you to join us on a journey to Discovering Christ​!

Discovering Christ is a 7-week experience.  

We will meet on Sundays, January 8 - February 26, 2017 from 5pm to 7:30pm to explore the greater questions:

  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Why does Jesus matter?
  • What does Jesus want us to know?
  • Why do I need a Savior?
  • Why is the Resurrection important for us?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • Why do I need the Church?
