A DEEP, BIBLICAL LOOK AT JESUS CHRIST
The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah?
In Priest, Prophet, King, you’ll discover Jesus as the Anointed One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Bishop Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
Through this deeply biblical program, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission, received when you are baptized “into Christ.”

Untold Blessing - Three Paths to Holiness
Author: Bishop Robert Barron
Wednesdays, (starting September 6, 2017), 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm in St. Francis Hall
HOW TO BECOME A SAINT
Our ultimate goal is to be a saint. It is our greatest calling and what is desired for us by our Creator.
Bishop Robert Barron paints a beautiful and mysterious image of what it takes to be a follower of Jesus Christ. He lays out three intriguing paths to holiness:
1. Finding the Center
2. Knowing You’re A Sinner
3. Realizing Your Life is Not About You
He also shares practical approaches to enhance the journey along these three paths. Untold Blessing and its companion book, The Strangest Way, are insightful guides for meditation as you walk in “The Way," either for personal reflection or for small group study and discussion.
