The Rescue Project Live

The first ever Rescue Project LIVE event comes to Columbus!

Join Fr. John Riccardo for the first-ever Rescue Project LIVE experience that is being held at the Ohio Expo Center on June 18, 2022.  The day includes five talks by Fr. John Riccardo, time for reflection and discussion, worship music presented by Damascus Worship, and Mass with our new bishop, Bishop Earl Fernandes.  

Ticket cost

Fr. John will lead this entire experience so you might be asking yourself why the ticket price is only $30? It’s simple, Fr. John wants everyone to attend and he wants to make sure that the ticket price is not an obstacle. He is donating his time and, at his request, sponsors are covering the venue expenses. The ticket price simply covers the cost of food. This truly is an opportunity of a lifetime so bring all your friends.

Heartfelt worship

You will be blessed by the music of Damascus Worship throughout this experience. The Holy Mass will be celebrated on Saturday afternoon. The vigil Mass for Corpus Christi will be celebrated at 4PM thus fulfilling your Sunday obligation.

Who should attend?

Everyone, ninth grade and up, is encouraged to attend this LIVE experience – whether you pray often or not at all. Bring your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.


Light breakfast, box lunch (you will select your preference when you register), and afternoon snacks will be provided. If you have food allergies, we encourage you to consider bringing your own food.
