Following Christ - Winter 2023


Are you wanting to grow in your relationship with the Lord Jesus? Are you looking for support and guidance in applying some of the basic disciplines and truths that have been practiced by Christians from the time of the early Church?

Following Christ is for anyone who is looking to grow in Catholic discipleship! Come after the 10:30 a.m. Mass and listen to a thought-provoking talk from the Christ-life presenters that is designed to help you grow in your prayer life, sacramental living, hearing God in Scripture, forgiving one another, overcoming sin, and many other areas of the faith. After the video presentation, you can share your thoughts in a prayerful and supportive small group. 

Continental breakfast/light fare and coffee provided.


Small groups will meet for seven consecutive Sunday mornings from 11:30 am-1:30 pm. starting on February 12th. Continental breakfast/light fare and coffee provided each week. 

Sessions will be held at the St. Gabriel Catholic Church, 6 Interlachen Rd., Hopkins, in the Community Room.
