In light of recent suicides (Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain) Find out how one of the historic icons of suicide (Vincent Van Gogh) has a different story than what you learned.

Jeff will be offering an 8 week course in Golden Valley, MN, sponsored by the Catechetical Institute.
The CI Life Skills "School of Discipleship" is open to ALL!
Learning new topics is interesting, but if what we learn is not incorporated into a dynamic walk with Christ, we end up just knowledge.
Led by Jeff Cavins, CI instructor and former director, this course is not a just a teaching, not simply a class— but an experience! Jeff will help you create the life you've been longing for as a modern-day disciple. If you've ever wondered what it was like to be a disciple 2,000 years ago... if ever you thought about what it would have been like to walk with Jesus daily—this course is for you!
School of Discipleship Description:
The CI has been offering many classes about the Catholic Faith; now it’s time to bring it all together in a celebration of learning, growing, and practicing. The School of Discipleship is an 8-part experience unlike any other that will not only teach the basics of discipleship but will provide an ongoing initiative to put what you learn into practice!
The School of Discipleship will take what you have learned to the next level! You will be joined by people like you—people who have a hunger to live and share their faith. This is the key to our Church growing.
The School of Discipleship meets 8 Thursdays from 7 PM - 8:30 PM at Good Shepherd Church in Golden Valley, MN, October 11 - December 13, 2018. (No class on Nov. 1 or Nov. 22.)
You’ll learn important keys to live your life as a modern disciple:
- What does it mean to be a modern-day disciple?
- What are the daily disciplines of a disciple?
- How do you share your faith with confidence?
- How do you bring your prayer life to a new level?
- How do you hear the voice of God in daily prayer?
