Live! is the fun, inspiring and practical experience for all (ages 12 and up), of applying the beauty and genius of the Gospel to every aspect of your life, from prayer and spirituality, to work, dating, marriage, parenting, health and more!” Chis Stefanick co-authored the program we use at St. Patrick’s for confirmation (Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation).
