Through Prayer, Learning, Sharing, Support, the Small Christian Community/Study Group strives to find ways to live the Gospel more fully and evangelize all into the fullness of truth which is … to know, love and serve God and one another.
Each week the members gather to pray, read and discuss the readings for the upcoming Sunday. The participants learn to apply the teachings from the Scriptures to their personal daily lives and to deepen their relationship to God and each other under the power and direction of the Holy Spirit.
5 Basic Elements:
Prayer – We pray together, grow in personal daily prayer time and pray for the parish and our world
Sharing – We share our faith experiences on how God touches us.
Learning – We study and learn the Holy Scriptures…what they say about the life of Jesus and to our lives.
Support – We offer support for one another as we live out the Gospel and our Christian values in today’s world.
Outreach – We offer the fruit of loving service to God by serving his people.
