"As pastor I was seeking a way to start engaging my parishioners with understanding why we should answer the call to Discipleship....

Inviting Darrin into the parish to help us form a small discipleship group has certainly awakened our hearts to discipleship.” 

 Fr. Jay Siceloff, Pastor – Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Bernardsville NJ


With material from Church tradition, teachings and current Catholic authors we lead the faithful through personal encounters with Jesus Christ to awaken their hearts, open to the Holy Spirit and become missionary disciples.

When most Catholics are asked to share how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ has influenced their life, they struggle to articulate meaningful experiences. They can speak about their ‘Catholic practices’ but not to the very essence of the mission of Jesus Christ. They cannot necessarily articulate what is the proclamation of the ‘Good News’ for their lives and how they experience God’s Truth and Mercy in that proclamation. We invite them into a journey with Jesus Christ to awaken their hearts, discover real relevance of their faith and become missionary in their lives.
