St. Monica-St. George has implemented a three-year initiative to “plant” small groups in our parish.
Small groups welcome ALL to come together to share our lives and the joy of the gospel in order to experience a more personal sense of community, to deepen our faith and to empower each other to make a difference outside the walls of the church.
Parishioners are led by a number of trained small group facilitators to engage in this meaningful, transformative experience in their own home, the Catholic Center or some other venue (e.g. a coffee shop).
Small groups meet for 5 weeks on various days and times in the fall and during the Lenten season.
Afterwards, participants from all small groups are invited to participate in a large gathering to reflect on their experiences with others over a pot-luck brunch in the parish hall during Advent Season and then again in the Easter Season.
Volunteers serve on the Core Team for Small Groups and/or as small group facilitators.
