The Rescue Project is an experience of the gospel surrounded by food, conversation and prayer which seeks – through Fr. John Riccardo/videos -  to proclaim the gospel in a compelling and attractive way over eight weeks in a small group discussion format. It is for anyone and everyone - those who have been walking with Jesus for years, as well as those for whom Jesus is only a figure in ancient history.

Our Education Commission and our Evangelization Committee will be piloting the Rescue Project in Our Lady of Grace parish starting in October. The cost is free.
