Following Christ Information Flyer

The ChristLife series has 3 different courses. The first course is "Discovering Christ," which was offered at St. Bernard's last fall. The next series is called "Following Christ," and is about living a full Christian life. Topics presented include prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the obstacles and temptations Christians face and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The series is endorsed by our Pastor, Msgr. Gaalaas, as well as our Parish Council and staff.

The format for each session includes a thought-provoking presentation followed by small group discussion, which is facilitated by a trained volunteer.  

Following Christ will begin on Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00 p.m. All sessions will be online. For a schedule and additional information, please review the flyer which is attached to this message.
