Conversion is not a one-time event.  It is a lifelong turning away from sin and toward Jesus Christ. Again and again and again …



In this film and study program, Bishop Robert Barron illuminates six biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through him. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one's attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

In his characteristically energetic style, Bishop Barron explains how conversion is not so much a one time event, but a life-long process. "Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him, as we strive on the path for spiritual excellence," explains Bishop Barron.

This video-based study program can be experienced individually or in a group.  Groups meet for eight 90-minute sessions to explore the six Scripture stories and Bishop Barron’s practical lessons for our own life.   Each session includes video viewing and small group discussion of the Study Guide questions. Participants read the commentary in the Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be done either before or after they view the video, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed. The Study Guide Commentary was written by Bishop Barron and Amy Welborn, the author of many books on spirituality and catechesis.  

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, study guide, facilitator guide, answer key, and prayer cards.  

Leaders can also register for a free training webinar which teaches the best ways to run an effective Conversion study group.

What is the Catholic definition of “conversion”? Contrary to Protestant belief in a “once and done” conversion and salvation, the Catholic view is a bit more nuanced.
