Small Christian Communities

What are Small Christian Communities? They are small groups (8-12 people) who meet monthly (usually in each other’s homes) to get to know each other better and to support and encourage each other as they grow in their faith and attempt to live out their faith commitment. When they gather, they have a social time, almost always eat, and then spend some time reflecting on the Sunday readings or other topics related to faith. It is a great opportunity to share questions and concerns about your religion in an environment that is open and supportive and to get to know fellow parishioners better.  Contact person: Cheryl Davis 693-6892.
