Rescue Project

I am not afraid. I was born for this.

St. Joan of Arc

Why Rescue?

We passionately believe that the most urgent task is the compelling proclamation of the Gospel, one that not only shares it in an attractive – and concentrated – way, but that also offers people a way of seeing reality, and of making sense of the world, history, and life that is vastly different from the story our modern culture tells.

Until this happens, the Christian faith is often experienced as a mere set of rules and disciplines, and simply going to Church isn’t likely to lead a person to embark on the great adventure that is following Jesus and continuing His mission of the rescuing of this world.

Who is it for?

The Rescue Project is for anyone and everyone! It appeals to those who have been walking with Jesus for years, as well as those for whom Jesus is only a figure in ancient history.

What is it?

Simply put, an experience of the Gospel surrounded by food, conversation and prayer. The Rescue Project seeks to proclaim the Gospel in a compelling and attractive way over eight weeks in a small group format. This experience is imbued with beauty, authentic humanity, and accompaniment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Rescue Project?
  • An opportunity for renewal.
  • Makes the gospel repeatable and accessible: Created, Captured, Rescued, Response.
  • Calls out the enemy, the one and only enemy of the entire human race, the one Jesus calls “the ruler of this world.”
  • Proposes an image of Jesus that is more than just kind, but also utterly unconquerable.
  • Integrates and untangles the Sacraments in the context of the gospel.
  • Clarifies the mission of Jesus and of His disciples.
  • Is rooted in early Church preaching
What does a Rescue gathering look like?

Rescue starts off with food and hospitality, followed by a dynamic video presentation. The experience also includes a group discussion at tables, where the presentation can be broken open and made more personal. There are also times for prayer and worship. It's a great opportunity to grow in your faith and meet other people.

What is the Retreat Day?

The retreat is the summit of The Rescue Project. This is the occasion to ask the Holy Spirit to powerfully renew our understanding of what Jesus has done for us, and mobilize us (for mission) with the conviction that we truly were born for this. And to give us the grace to be His love and spread His love in a way that we have never done before.

The day includes live music, great food, building friendships, thought-provoking presentations, discussion opportunities, and specific times for prayer.

How long does Rescue last?

Rescue Project is an 8 week opportunity that include a 1-day retreat experience on a Saturday. The course meets for 8 weeks in a row, +/- calendar holidays.

Will Rescue Project be offered other times?

Spring 2023 is our "pilot season" where we will offer three opportunities for people to participate. We are planning to offer Rescue Project several times of year and include a zoom option as we grow forward.

Is childcare available?

Yes! When you register for a seat, please lookout for the questions about childcare - it is available for each day!

Does it cost money?

Because of the generous support of our parishioners, through tithing and offertory, we are able to offer Rescue Project at no cost.

I'm Married, should I sit with my spouse?

Great question - and it is totally up to you! Some spouses like to sit together and go through the journey side by side. Other spouses have found a benefit from sitting separately and then sharing their experience together away from the Rescue Project sessions.
