    The Holy Spirit and the Life of Grace

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    One of the most profound aspects of the Catholic Faith is that Christ sent his Spirit to dwell in the hearts of the baptized. But who is the Holy Spirit, and how do we actively invite him to do what he was placed inside of us to do?

    The Story of Salvation: Creation, Fall, & Redemption

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    Our modern world has lost its story. We don't know from where we came. We don't know why we're here. And we don't know where we're going. In this study we'll see that God wants to draw us into his greater story—one that rescues us from death and leads to an eternal relationship with him.

  • Be Church with Sr. Miriam Heidland

    YDisciple - The Church

  • Prepare the Way with Bob Rice

    YDisciple - Advent

    It's been said that Christmas is merely a pagan day that was Christianized by the early Church—and now the pagans want it back. Yet the holiday we call Christmas (and the season of Advent that precedes it) is marked by wonder, holiness, and beauty, which go beyond mere sentimentality. Preparing "...

    Why Do I Need the Church? The Mystery of the Catholic Church

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    Some people say, "I'm spiritual, but not religious" or "I like Jesus, but don't need a church." In this study, we'll see how one can't fully love the King while rejecting his Kingdom. Yet loving the Church can be a challenge when it is filled with people just like us.

    Divine Revelation: God Seeking Us & the Compass of Our Lives

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    Religion is often perceived as humanity's search for God, but Christianity is more about God's search for us. God "unveils" himself to us and reveals his plan for our lives through "Divine Revelation." But what is this revelation, and how does it impact our lives?

    True Beauty: Passion & Purity, Part 2 with Mary Bielski

    YDisciple - True Beauty: Chastity for Girls

    The Church has a beautiful vision of human sexuality that is often buried in the confusion of our culture. In this second session, we'll look at sex in the context of the love Jesus models for us. Here we will see how marriage was designed by God as a reflection and witness to his love. Presented...

    Called Session 4: Called to Consecrated Life with Sr. Bethany Madonna

    Called: Discover Your Vocation by YDisciple

    The consecrated life is God's remarkable gift to the Church. To be called to the "perfection of charity" means a life of obedience, celibacy, and poverty in his service. What steps can we take to discern if we are summoned to that vocation?

  • Community, Part 2 with Ennie Hickman

    YDisciple - The Church

    To understand the Church today, we need to look at the life of the early Church and how "they devoted themselves … to the breaking of the bread" (Acts 2:42). In this session, we'll see how the "breaking of the bread" is actually the Eucharist and why the Church calls the Body and Blood "th...

In this session, we'll see the Church the way Jesus created it: as a family bound together in the love of God. But what are the char...

    Called Session 3: Called to Holy Orders with Fr. Paul Hoesing

    Called: Discover Your Vocation by YDisciple

    Every baptized Christian is supposed to make the priesthood of Jesus real in this world. However, God calls some men to serve the Church within Holy Orders, acting in the person of Jesus to give the grace of the Sacraments to all. How can young men know if they're called to this special role?
