Small Groups

We are excited to offer small group opportunities for parishioners to pray, socialize, study, and grow in their faith together. This spring, small groups are meeting weekly. Options include:

- Tuesday evening Small Group (Consoling the Heart of Jesus - see below for more details)
- Wednesday Evening Study Small Group while kids are at Faith Formation (Symbolon Series, continued from fall. See below for more details)
- Thursday Morning Study (Consoling the Heart of Jesus - see below for more details)

Another option is to invite friends, neighbors or coworkers and start your own small group.  We can help plan your small group and support you along the way!

Consoling the Heart of Jesus

Combining the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius with the teachings of Sts. Therese of Lisieux, Faustina Kowlaska, and Louis de Montfort, we will learn about God's infinite mercy and how we can give him joy, consoling his heart, by accepting his love and trusting in him completely. We'll discover how suffering can actually help us grow spiritually closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Meeting times:
-Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00 PM, in the Gathering Place
-Thursday Mornings from 9:00-10:30 AM, in the Gathering Place
