What is Rescue?

The Rescue Project is an experience of community, conversation, and prayer.  It is a way to teach the gospel — the good news — in a compelling, succinct, and beautiful way.  Taught over a series of weeks, each session includes prayer, a meal, praise music, a short video, and small group discussion.  The Rescue Program was developed by Fr. John Riccardo and his team at ActsXXIX.

Why Rescue?

The world is full of goodness — and despair; people are hurting, confused, overwhelmed, and seeking answers.  People long for something — and Rescue knows what that something is and how to share it with others. We believe an urgent task is the compelling proclamation of the gospel, one that not only shares it in an attractive – and concentrated – way, but that also offers people a way of making sense of the world that is vastly different from the story our modern culture tells. 

Who's it for?

The Rescue Project is for anyone and everyone (7th grade and older). It appeals to those who have been walking with Jesus for years, those who have fallen away from the Church, as well as those for whom Jesus is only a figure in ancient history. You do not need to be Catholic or a parishioner of St. Max Kolbe to attend.
