The primary purpose of gathering into small groups is faith sharing. This particular process of faith sharing includes praying together, reflecting on Scripture, and sharing personal faith stories. While Scripture is central to the sharing, this is not Scripture study. Faith sharing is about growing in the Lord and supporting each other in living out the faith on a daily basis.
There are groups of Small Christian Communities which meet on a regular basis. If you are interested in participating in a group or would like to start one, please contact Merry Reardon at 408-997-5112 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

God is calling us all to grow. Are you able to respond? This Fall, join us in exploring how spiritual development both requires AND encourages emotional wellbeing. What do we need to shed in order to grow? What do we need to practice in order for God to help us grow? Allow yourself to answer God’s call to radical wellbeing in our Catholic Christian community. Have you been too busy to grow? No matter where you are on your faith journey, we will encourage each other along the way. Women of all ages come together in prayer and fellowship every Tuesday in the Parish Hall. Come transform with us!

Wednesday Men’s Groups – 6:30 to 7:50 a.m. in the Parish Office, and 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall
Holy Spirit offers opportunities for men to come together in prayer. A well established Men’s Faith Sharing group meets 6:30–7:50 a.m. on Wednesday mornings in the Parish Office Conference room. If you are interested in this early bird group, please contact Frank Ricchio at email@example.com for more information. A more recent addition that arose during our ARISE gatherings meets on Monday nights from 7:15-8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. If you are better able to make an evening gathering, please contact John Stubler at firstname.lastname@example.org. These groups offer an opportunity for the men in our parish to build a deeper relationship with Jesus and one another.
