Why Your Ordinary is Extraordinary: Follow the Way of St. Teresa of Calcutta
Presenter: Nicholas Brandt
In this session we will take a closer look into our lives: not just the extraordinary moments but also the ordinary every day facts of our lives. The goal is to value both of these aspects in our life to see how God is using our lives to tell His story, and to put our story to use for his kingdom!
2. Trust: Why Believe at All: Follow the Way of St. Augustine
Presenter: Paul Bianchi
Do you have doubts about the existence of God, or the divinity of Jesus and the institution of the church? This session will dive into the Truth about what we believe and why we believe that this is Truth.
3. Plug into the Power of Prayer: Follow the Way of St. Teresa of Calcutta
Presenter: Bruce Baumann
We hear the word prayer a lot and we know we should probably do it, but how? Or why? Or when? Or where? Come join us as we explore this very basic foundation of our relationship with God.
4. Who is the Holy Spirit? Follow the Way of a Giant: St. Therese of Lisieux
Presenter: Sister Josephine Garrett
Do you think you know the Holy Spirit? Do you want to know more about him and how he is working in your life? This session will focus on helping us to have a more real relationship with the Spirit, who is a person, ready to work in us and with us, and has been from all eternity.
5. Prayer is Your All-Terrain Vehicle: Follow the Way of Blessed Chiara "Luce" Badano
Presenter: Katie Erskine
“Is it supposed to be so boring?” Imagine flying full speed over rolling hills, crossing a rocky river bed, scaling mountains on uncharted trails. What if I told you that’s my experience of prayer? Come see how prayer can carry you over the terrain of life!
6. Trust: The Cornerstone of Faith: Follow the Way of St. Teresa of Avila
Presenter: Bridget Hanafin
What does it mean to have trust in our faith journey? We have this word thrown around often and are asked to trust in many different ways, but do we know where to begin? This session will focus on how trusting becomes a way of life—learning how to trust is part of our journey.
7. Story of my Life: What is a Testimony? How do I share mine? Follow the Way of St. Peter and Paul
Presenter: Cody Barras
We all have our own “story.” You may think your story is boring or lame, but God certainly doesn’t think so. In fact, he’s counting on you to share that story with others, because your story is His story too. In this session, learn what elements make a good “story” of your life so far and practice concrete methods for sharing your testimony with others.
8. Obedience: The Way to Experience True Freedom: Follow the Way of Venerable Fr. Emil Kapaun
Presenter: John Eldridge
While the concepts of “obedience” and “freedom” might appear to be contradictory, nothing could be further from the truth. This session will explore the subject of obedience: what it is, what it is not, and why it’s important. We’ll discuss how obedience to God can lead to true freedom, and allow you to use the gifts God gave you to their fullest.
9. For Such a Time as This: Follow the Way of St. Teresa of Calcutta
Presenter: Ali Hoffman
One of the things I love most about the great Saints of the Church is that they are no longer living here on earth. Does God just stop making Saints? No. He calls up the people of THIS generation to become the Saints He has created them to be; the Saints the world desperately needs. And you are one of them. We will look at what it means to live a life of radical virtue, bold faith, and authentic joy in order to bring the Kingdom of God here as it is in Heaven.
10. The Way of Prayer: Follow the Way of St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and Mary Mother of Jesus
Presenter: Mhairi Jackson
Just as prayer is interactive, so is this session. Together, we will breakdown practical prayer techniques with insights on how to pray with the bible and with others. There will also be time for personal reflection to explore: what prayer means to me, how important it is in my life, and why God continually calls us to deeper prayer.
