Discovering Christ

Discovering Christ is a seven-week experience where anyone and everyone, from the baptized in the pews to the unbaptized, is invited to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ.

We all know people in our lives, communities, and even parishes who wonder about the meaning of life. God gives us the responsibility to open doors and provide spaces of encounter with the personal love of our Lord Jesus for people who are searching for the meaning of life. Discovering Christ creates this open door for anyone who is searching for the meaning of their lives and provides an opportunity to share the Good News and the personal love of Jesus Christ.

Discovering Christ helps people enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children.

Hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ

Enjoy a delicious dinner and listen to an enlightening talk. After, join fellow adults in a small group exploring the meaning of life and the identity of Jesus Christ.

Join us for Discovering Christ Tuesday evenings this Fall! For more information or to register, please contact Deacon Dave Urcinas at deacondave@stmagdalen.org or 908-751-1789.

What are people saying about ChristLife here at St. Magdalen’s?

“This course taught or retaught the great central concepts of Christianity.”

“I have been a parishioner here for many years, I went through RCIA, taught CCD and am a current Eucharistic Minister, but I was lukewarm. ChristLife changed my life and it will change yours. I hope that you will give it a chance!”

“It is definitely worth the time. I found myself looking forward to Tuesday nights … Regardless of where you are in your religious journey, it’s just a great opportunity to connect with others and improve your relationship with Christ.”

“Make the leap, you won’t regret it! Attending ChristLife is truly an eye opening experience and will fill your heart with much love and joy.”

“It will change how you see the world, respond to life’s trials and challenges, and how you pray!”

“ChristLife is a worthwhile tool to self-discovery and to discuss faith issues with others ...”

“Many of us are stuck, plateaued or just lukewarm with our faith … Thank you ChristLife for setting my faith on fire …”

“Give it (a) shot, you won’t regret it.”
