What is REBOOT! ?

This world-class event features internationally acclaimed speaker and author Chris Stefanick.  The evening will center around a practical exploration and understanding of the Catholic faith, and all the ways it’s meant to impact our lives, including prayer and spirituality, work and dating, marriage, parenting, health and more.

What People Are Saying About REBOOT!

  • Thank you. Thank you! My husband and I were talking about divorce. Tonight, he apologized and told me he wants to start over. You saved my marriage tonight!
  • My son’s been away from the Church for years – he just told me he’s ready to start talking about being Catholic again.
  • Heck, I’m Protestant and I know about this guy – this guy rocks! Me and a few of my Lutheran friends will be there for sure.
  • Never felt so proud to be a Catholic as I did last night!
  • We haven’t felt this joy-filled leaving the church in a very long time. Phenomenal!
  • I have new things to think about. New things I want to think about. Chris touched – and touched me – on every aspect of life. From marriage, parenting, Mass, Eucharist, death, hope . . . the list goes on. Wonderful!
  • I cried my eyes out last night as the message I heard was meant for me, and all my past problems.
  • We can’t believe it. We had a man at the event last week who was invited by a friend: he hasn’t
    been to Church in 50 years. I saw him at Mass yesterday. He told me he is so grateful for the event because it finally opened his heart to God. It is just like you said: he just needed an invitation to the right thing.
  • Thank-you so much: it was moving in the deepest part of my soul. You really helped me recognize
    how far away I am from having the kind of relationship with Jesus I am yearning for. Thank you for inspiring me to reach for more!
  • I would like to share some news about my middle daughter who attended REBOOT! with me a few months ago.  On the way home that night, she told me it was the first time she ever truly heard the message of the Gospel and Catholicism.  We had a great conversation on the way home, and since then I see a real openness and receptivity I have not seen before. She attended Catholic schools, religious ed and has had many Catholic influences . . . so even though she had heard these things, what Chris said truly penetrated her mind and heart in a way nothing had before.  Since then she has started attending Mass with me again. I am so happy.  I am thrilled about this and owe Chris a HUGE thank you in making this difference for her!
