Men’s and Women’s Sessions

Mass and program with Fr. Aaric Aamodt, Kory LaCroix, and Michele Volk

Men’s Session:
“The Battle for the Heart of Man: Why to Start, When to Fight, and How to Surrender”
with Kory LaCroix

“It is not so much that we are too bold to endure rules; it is rather that we are too timid to endure responsibilities.” –G.K. Chesterton 

Responsibilities. Ugh. Freedom for men today has increasingly come to mean detachment from responsibility, authority, and truth. We look forward to weekends so we can escape our commitments, veg out, and do what we want. But God didn’t liberate his sons so that they could veg outCome on! Christ set us free so that we could live in His fierce love, and live the incredible adventure that God has for us. This is the battle of the heart – the battle for freedom. We cannot afford to get this wrong. We need to know why to start, when to fight, and how to surrender. Let’s go! 

Women’s Session:
“Freedom and Femininity”
with Michele Volk

There are a lot of voices vying for our attention trying to tell us who we are, how to dress, how to, how to…

But only one Voice matters.  And that Voice is that of our Creator, the Lord God Almighty. What does He have to say about this? Who does He say that we are? There is a freedom in knowing this truth. It changes things. It changes our relationship with God, with ourselves, and with others. We will explore the practicals of living in this freedom.

Is God Calling You?

Mass with Archbishop Bernard Hebda
Evening Program with Fr. David Blume

What will you do with your life? What are your plans, dreams and goals? Do you know that God has a wonderful plan for your life – a future full of hope (Jer. 29:11)? Do you know that the Lord Jesus is calling each one of us to follow Him in becoming holy and living our Catholic faith out loud.

But the Lord Jesus is also calling a select group of courageous young women and men, just like you, to commit your existence totally to Him…possibly as a Catholic priest, religious sister or brother.

Are you open to asking the question that is seldom uttered in our busy world, “Lord, how are You calling me to follow You?” 

We welcome Archbishop Bernard Hebda for this special evening along with the Archdiocesan Vocations Team led by Fr. David Blume and religious sisters and brothers and priests from the Archdiocese. Seminarians from St. John Vianney Seminary and St. Paul Seminary join us also.  Hear their stories and ask your questions about the call.

Special breakout sessions for the young ladies and men.

Discerning God’s Will For Your Future

with Fr. Brian Park

What I am to do with my life? What will I do this weekend? Should I date this person? What will I do when I graduate? What career or profession should I choose? How should I spend my money? What car should I drive? Is God calling me to marriage, priestly or religious life? These are great questions! And the truth is that the mature Christian disciple is always prudently discerning God’s will for his or her life – from big to small.

Fr. Brian Park, Pastor of Annunciation Catholic Church in Minneapolis, will be with us to celebrate Mass. Later in the evening he will break open practical principles and tips on how to discern God’s will for your life.

Our evening includes Eucharistic Adoration.

A Walk with Jesus Through Holy Week

with Bishop Andrew Cozzens
Saturday, April 4, 2020

At this special Lifeline, we enter into the most solemn week of the Christian year…Holy Week. It is the most important week of in the Church year!  It is a time when we celebrate in a special way the Passion, death and Resurrection of Jesus. But it can be so easy to observe these days as merely a historical commemoration or recalling historical facts. We may wonder why Holy Week is important? What happens during Holy Week? What is the Triduum?  What difference can Holy Week really make in my life?

Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Auxiliary Bishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis, will celebrate Mass and lead us in the evening session. Bishop Cozzens has spoken to countless thousands of Catholic young people with the message that transforms lives.

Our evening includes Eucharistic Adoration.
