Faith Sharing / Scripture Discussion Groups
Faith Sharing and Scripture Discussion Groups help participants to share personal insights and experiences so that they can apply the Gospel in their own lives. Various groups meet regularly to discuss scripture passages for upcoming weekend liturgies or to engage in bible study. These groups also provide opportunities to connect with others on a deeper level. Some groups meet throughout the year. Other groups meet only during Advent and/or Lent. Each group decides where and when gatherings are held. Individuals may either start their own group or join with an existing group. Please contact the parish office for more information
These retreat experiences are a way for adult parishioners to spend an extended time together delving deeper into their own Christ-centered faith journey and forming deeper friendships. Women’s and men’s retreats are typically held during Spring and Fall months. Information on the next retreat will be posted here and published in the parish bulletin.
