Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life

Jesus is our savior, our redeemer, our Lord, and our God. Our belief in Jesus is what makes us who we are as Catholics, as Christians.  We invite you to come to understand him better, what he taught and what he did for us through a 10-week video study program exploring his life among us.

Jesus:  The Way, the Truth and the Life will present engaging video presentations by Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Edward Sri, followed by lively group discussions and fellowship.  Participants meet every Tuesday evening via Zoom from 7:00pm – 8:30pm beginning January 26th. 

We hope that this is the opportunity you have been waiting for: a help in strengthening your faith, your understanding and your relationship with Jesus Christ.  

Register soon by phone or email to Brenda Kelly, whose phone number is listed in the Bulletin.

We hope you can join us!
