The Search

The Search is an innovative video series that tackles the key questions of every human heart —Why am I here? What's life all about? What happens when we die? What do you seek? In seven beautifully filmed episodes, Chris Stefanick and experts from multiple fields of science, medicine, psychology, art, and religion examine our place in the larger story of existence.

Whether you’re a practiced inquirer or a jaded skeptic, The Search will speak to you. You may be reassured by some parts, and challenged by others. Either way, you’ll find a lot here to think about. And when all is said and done, life’s questions demand to be answered.


To watch The Search, you may register, at no cost, using the parish’s FORMED subscription.

If you'd like to facilitate a small group, please contact Cyndi at 636-332-9225 ext. 234 or cyndi@stpatsch.org. An easy-to-use Coordinator’s Manual is provided.
