  • SMALL CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES

    What is a small Christian Community? It is a group of 8 to 12 people who are committed to meet either weekly or by-weekly to read and discuss the scripture readings for the following weekend. Each group is lead by a facilitator who invites members of the group to read each of the readings and invites them to share what they interpret from each particular reading. Reflections from several sources such as The Word Among Us, the Magnificat, lectors workbook and other publications may be used to help
    understand the readings. It is a way to build
    community and to help all members to grow in their faith.

    Anyone interested in joining a group or for more information is asked to contact Gail Cox at 203-245-1846, or Maureen Fuest at 203-245-7607, moefuest@aol.com. We hope to start our new groups in September.
