Surviving and thriving

Matt Regitz

Suffering is our least favorite topic, especially for a workshop!  We all know it, we all experience it, and we all feel it.  But is there more to it, is there a way out?  Matt will share both his own raw journey right through the heart of grief and the role God played in moving him from surviving to thriving again.  There is hope buried in this universal human experience of suffering, let’s find it together!

¿Cómo Encontrar la Felicidad Verdadera?

Padre alex caudillo

"¿Algunas vez te has preguntado porque los videojuegos son tan llamativos para los muchas personas jovenes, porque les gustan ciertas películas o porque juegan ciertos deportes? ¿Alguna vez te has preguntado porque les gustan ciertas personas como cantantes, actores o actrices y quieren ser como ellos? ¿Te has preguntado porque relaciones o amistades son tan importante para jovenes y adultos? LA RAZON ES PORQUE POR MEDIO DE ELLOS, DIOS NOS LLAMA A TENER VIDA EN ABUNDANCIA. Ven y descubre cómo es que todas estas experiencias de vida nos pueden guiar a encontrar los deseos del corazón de felicidad verdadera y tener vida en abundancia en Dios."

catholic guilt must die

taylor schroll

Christ’s death and resurrection on the cross bought our salvation and Jesus has made us co-heirs in his victory over sin and death. So why do we walk around feeling defeated all the time by our sin and shame? Pope Francis said, “There are Christians whose lives seem like Lent without Easter.” It is time to let go of the guilt and become Fully Alive by living in the joy and victory of Christ.

Sister Maria Jose Picture JPEG_square for web.jpg

La Vocación: mi "sí" y el "sí" de María

Hermana María José

Dios invito a Maria a abrazar la vocación de ser la madre de Dios y nuestra madre, y ella respondió con un firme "sí.” ¿Qué es lo que Dios te pide en este momento de tu vida? ¿Cómo sabes si Dios te está llamando a la vida religiosa o al sacerdocio o al matrimonio? Hermana María José hablara sobre el “sí” de Maria y el “si” a la invitación de Dios a la vida religiosa o sacerdocio. También explicara sobre que significa discernir y vivir tu vocación.
