Devout Life Teachings


In the Seventh Seminar, you were encouraged to make the choice to lead a devout life.  The Devout Life Teachings will help guide you on this journey.  These teachings draw on the writings of St. Francis de Sales and other Saints who walked the Road to Perfection.

The Participant Guide is a succinct version of the Devout Life Seminars, recommended from group study (or individually), and can be viewed here.
