The campaign officially launches on Sunday July 23rd at St Andrew’s Cathedral cloister at 3pm and it would be great if you could come along to show your support.

REBOOT! Live! 27th July at 7 pm. Bute Hall, University of Glasgow

June 24, 2017

There is a great event coming up next month, called Reboot! Live! that we are really looking forward to. Chris Stefanick is a world renowned speaker who is coming to Glasgow especially for this event! A great opportunity for all ages, those of strong faith and of no faith for an evening to be inspired…. here’s more information from the organisers:

Centred on the heart of the Gospel, REBOOT! Live! reminds people of the love of God for them, and of their great purpose in life; and, shows them how to live the Gospel in everyday ways, in their everyday lives.

CHRIS STEFANICK is an internationally acclaimed author and speaker. He has devoted his life to inspiring people to live a bold, contagious faith. Archbishop Charles. J. Chaput, OFM, called Chris, “one of the most engaging defenders of the Christian faith on the scene today.”

Check out some of his videos on YouTube by searching: “Chris Stefanick”. One of our favourites is “You’re Kind of A Big Deal”! Or go to his website: www.reallifecatholic.com

The aim of this event is to “Reboot” one’s faith… therefore, why not bring along those friends or family members that are far from the Church? This event could be the catalyst for their return! 🙂
