A group of adults (usually 6 – 12) who meet regularly (weekly, biweekly, monthly) to reflect on Scripture, share life, and pray. Some groups also meet during the Lenten season or to discuss a book or topic.
How are Groups Formed?
The Adult Faith Formation Committee will assist those interested in forming faith sharing groups and will also provide possible materials for use. Often parishioners seek out other individuals on their own and start groups.
If you are interested in joining a small faith-sharing group, contact Carol Lavenz for more information:
