The Variable  with Fr. Erik Lundgren and David Calavitta

Simply put: we were made for greatness. We are made in the image of God and called to carry on His mission. The early Church understood this. Though they were young, they were filled with power and were witnesses of the greatness of heaven coming into this world.

The Crux  with Fr. Michael Schmitz

There is a “moment of truth” in every person’s life, but there are also “moments of truth” that we face every day. In those moments, what we choose will make all the difference. The reality is that insignificant decisions matter. What kind of decisions will you make that make you?

October 3, 2015: The Variable with Fr. Erik Lundgren and David Calavitta

Have you ever felt that you were made for more? I think that we’ve all felt that way before at one point or another. We find ourselves stuck in the mediocrity around us and something in us cries for more.

Simply put: we were made for greatness. We are made in the image of God and called to carry on His mission. The early Church understood this.

Though they were young, they were filled with power and were witnesses of the greatness of heaven coming into this world.

But what about now? Do we witness it in the same way the early Church did? What’s changed since then? The truth is, we are the only variable.

Fr. Erik Lundgren is the Associate Pastor of Saints Joachim and Anne Catholic Church in Shakopee, MN. His on-fire faith is engaging and contagious!

David Calavitta is a passionate Catholic speaker in love with Christ and his Church. He is a popular national speaker at major Catholic youth conferences. He has served with NET Ministries and now is Director of Design & Marketing for LifeTeen International.

There are no tickets required for this event.

Never has the need been greater for those willing to pay the price to become heroes of faith, men of virtue, young men willing to boldly live as disciples.

A former television news anchor turned stay-at-home mom, Kalley will share some of the tough lessons she learned while pursuing a career in media, then transitioning to marriage and raising 6 children.

February 6, 2016: Who Will God Raise Up? with Fr. David Blume

The time is now as the modern world awaits the emergence of a handful of spiritual heroes and heroines who will serve the Church as priests, religious sisters and religious brothers – those specially called as witnesses of hope to a world in desperate need of the Good News.

The question is not: Will God raise up great men and women for the Church’s mission? The question is: Who will God raise up? And the answer: Those you least expect.

With us will be Fr. David Blume from the Archdiocesan Vocations Office, Sr. Mary David, F.S.G.M, and a great team of religious sisters and religious brothers. Also with us will be seminarians from Saint Paul Seminary and Saint John Vianney Seminary.

There are no tickets required for this event.

 

March 5, 2016: Symbols, Signs, Smells & Bells: What is Going on at Mass? with Fr. Brian Park

Please Note: We will begin with a 6pm Program followed by Mass

If we but understood more deeply and participated more fully in that centerpiece of our Catholic faith which we know as “Mass,” the thought would never enter our mind that Mass is boring! The truth is that if you are bored during Mass, it isn’t because Mass is boring – it is probably because you know very little about Mass and what is actually happening during the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.

Every symbol, sign, prayer, response, gesture, bell, and smell, along with the Creed, Scripture, and the ancient prayers…all of these hold profound meaning! And when we begin to understand that profound meaning, Mass truly becomes the source and summit of our faith.

This month at Lifeline we will switch up the schedule and begin with a dynamic presentation by Fr. Brian Park, Pastor of Annunciation Catholic Church in Minneapolis. Fr. Brian will walk us through the Mass and explain what is really going on. After his presentation, we have intermission and then will celebrate Mass.

There are no tickets required for this event.

 

April 2, 2016: Temptation and the Sacrament of Reconciliation with Bishop Andrew Cozzens

Do you ever find it difficult to deal with temptation? Do you ever find your heart torn between good and evil, between following Christ and committing sin? The fact is that our world is a battlefield and being tempted is a reality of life.

Many of us face these temptations each and every day but do our best to do what is right. When we do wrong, we often feel the guilt and shame from the sin that we committed. But there is hope! There is a way to overcome sin, grow in holiness, and live the life of freedom which Jesus promises us.

Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Chairman of NET Ministries’ Board of Directors and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, is our special guest tonight. He has spoken to countless youth and young adults with the message that transforms lives. His words and witness can transform yours…if you’re ready. Our evening includes Eucharistic Adoration.

There are no tickets required for this event.

 

May 7, 2016: The Eucharist: The Healing Touch of Jesus with Fr. Jim Livingston

Jesus promises us abundant life, but often we find ourselves wounded in spirit or in our emotions even though we may be strong physically. Many carry these interior wounds with them throughout their entire life. Jesus is the Healer who knows the inner needs of each of our hearts and He alone can reach the wounds that no one sees. The Eucharist is the Healing Presence of Jesus.

Fr. Jim Livingston will offer a Mass of healing for Catholic young people. Later in the evening, Fr. Jim will share how to personally encounter Jesus in every Eucharist and lead us in a time before the Lord, Our Healer, in the Blessed Sacrament.

There are no tickets required for this event.
