Evangelization Intention - Mission in Asia. That with a missionary spirit the Christian communities of Asia may announce the Gospel to those who are still awaiting it.
The Catholic Church is finding that one hour a week is not sufficient to create a culture of spirituality that will help us to grow in a more personal relationship with Jesus on a daily basis.The know Love Serve model is recommending this as a way to take the next step in our faith journey:
So what does a small group look like at St. Vincent’s:
What are small groups: A group of parishioners
( 6- 12 people ) that come together twice a month to build relationships and share their faith.
Who are small groups for – all adults in the parish there will be groups of couples, singles, young , old
When and Where do the groups meet: Small groups meet twice a month for 90 mins in homes of parishioners. The times and dates are chosen by the small group members and what works best for them.
The goal is to get together and develop friendships that are focused on growing closer to Jesus in our everyday life. Small groups have a facilitator that are responsible for contacting members and giving them the time and place where group will meet. Meetings begin with 30 mins of socializing and food, the next hour follows a simple small group format that the facilitator will lead.
We hope you will consider joining the formation of these small groups that will help us take the next step in our faith journey.
