Small Christian Communities

Active in our Parish since 1985, this diocesan program is designed to focus on the upcoming weekly scripture readings and the integration of the Word into our lives. There are four dimensions to the small Christian community: word, community, worship, and witness. The booklet Quest, published by the Archdiocesan Department of Small Christian Communities provides the structure for each meeting. Meetings are held for nine weeks in both the spring and the fall and take place in the homes of group members. The small communities have developed a special bond with each other and the Church. They have established a supportive network of friends who care for, pray for, and help each other. Those interested in deepening their understanding of scripture and its significance in their lives, in bonding with other members of the community, and in sharing their faith and questions about their faith are encouraged to participate.
