December Disciples' Night

"To Walk by the Spirit"

Join us for Mass, supper, a live-streamed speaker, and time for fellowship!

Please note that this month's Disciples' Night will be held at the Diocesan Pastoral Center, 5201 Bishops Blvd, Fargo, ND 58104.

Agenda:

  • 6:00 Mass at the Pastoral Center

  • 6:30 Supper (Free-will offering)

  • 7:00 Speaker Patrick Ries via live stream

  • 7:45 Discussion and fellowship

Without the power of Holy Spirit in our lives, we can't live out the Great Commission, making disciples of all nations. Patrick will help us understand and integrate the Holy Spirit into our daily lives. How do we walk each and every day flowing in the charisms, anointing, and freedom the Holy Spirit provides? Why is this important for our ability to bring the healing, liberating, and life-giving Gospel to others? St. Paul VI called the Holy Spirit the "principal agent of evangelization," but is He the driving force of our missionary activity?

Patrick is the Director of Encounter Ministries and host of the EWTN globally syndicated Encounter Radio, and speaks at conferences internationally. He has a passion and drive to empower Catholics to walk in the power and love of the Holy Spirit and carries a strong heart for seeing Christian unity manifest.

Have we forgotten our first love? Using personal stories and Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, Kris Frank will examine how we can rediscover our joy, peace, and love in knowing and serving Jesus. The challenge is not only to remember what God has done but to allow Him to take us deeper. Paul had some strong words for the Ephesians and Kris will help us hear and take them to heart. 

Kris attended Franciscan University and graduated in 2008 with a degree in catechetics and theology with a youth ministry concentration. He now lives and serves as a missionary for Dirty Vagabond Ministries in Steubenville. Kris has been privileged to travel around the country, sharing the Gospel with teens and young adults at various retreats, camps, and conferences. He spends his free time with his wife, Grace, and their four children.

        Sr. Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T., is a graduate of the University of Nevada-Reno, where she played volleyball on a scholarship and majored in communications, hoping to work for ESPN or another news organization. She lived a typical college life of parties, sports, and freedom, and seemed to have it all. In reality, her life was empty and broken. Sr. Miriam’s life began to transform as she realized Jesus was real and that he was the great love that her heart desired.

        In 1998, she entered the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, a missionary community that serves globally. Sr. Miriam has served at missions in Rome, North Dakota, Seattle, and Texas. She is the author of the book "Loved as I Am," and tweets at the handle @onegroovynun.  She will share more details of her powerful conversion story with us at this Disciples' Night!

                            August Disciples' Night

                            Please join us for Mass, supper, this month's speaker, Caroline Dirkes, and time for fellowship. Caroline will be speaking on evangelization in her talk "Going All In!"

                            [At 19 years old, Caroline found herself staring 4,000 feet below holding on to the wing of the plane, wondering if she would actually have the courage to let go. Because she hesitated, it almost cost her her life. Our faith in Christ is similar to sky diving, any extreme sport, or big undertaking where there is no turning back. God is calling us to a radical surrender--to go all in without counting the cost. It is through this surrender that God's blessings become more bountiful than we could ever imagine. Caroline will share the testimony of her struggle to let go and how God blessed her when she finally did.]
