Session 2: Discover My Faith Story – Can you see the burning bushes in your own life? What are the obstacles to being attentive to God’s presence each day? The Catholic tradition offers a wealth of spiritual tools and techniques to pay attention to God who walks with you each and every day.
Session 3: Share My Faith Story – Evangelization is everyone’s business! There is an easy way to compose your story and know when the time is right to share it.
