For Adult and Young Adult Groups
Spiritual Growth Groups
Small groups of parishioners who gather to support one another in their Catholic Faith. Most groups meet once or twice monthly for 1 – 2 hours in individual homes to praise God, pray, study Scripture, and to support and encourage each other while enjoying a time of fellowship together. There are several groups composed of varying ages and backgrounds. Meeting locations and dates vary for each group. Parishioners are highly encouraged to participate! SPN Contact: Theresa Sass
This Ministry provides a series of seminars to help men grow in their faith. Seminars run four to six weeks in the Fall and in the Spring, and often involve Scripture Study. Contact John Canterna.
Women’s Scripture Study
Women gather on a weekday for six weeks in the Fall and six weeks in the Spring to grow in knowledge and love of God through the reading and study of Sacred Scripture. Childcare is provided. Contact Lydia Keys or Theresa Waggoner.
