We are all inherently looking to belong, to be deeply connected...to be loved. That's because life is meant to be shared, with and for others. We were created for relationships! Small Groups give you the opportunity to gather in a smaller setting outside of Mass, (online at the moment) to get to know each other better and grow deeper in faith. It's in these interactions, with ordinary, imperfect believers, that we learn real fellowship and experience the connection God intends for us.
Holy Family has been connecting parishioners together through Small Groups for a number of years and we know that countless new friendships have been made, people have grown deeper in their faith and lives have literally been changed!
A Small Group is a group of 3-12 people who commit to meeting regularly, often in each other's homes, or using an online video platform, for 60-90 minutes to share and grow together in Christ.
Taking that Next Step...
Whether you are looking to join a group or start your own with friends you start with the inquiry below.
But first...consider hosting your own group! With just a few people you can start a group. You don’t need special training and there are no formal requirements - just a spirit for generosity, and a heart for others. We'll provide all the support you need (and maybe additional group members too)!
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them" Mt 18:20
Hosting a Group of Friends is as Easy as 1-2-3!
(Hover over the numbers)
Personally invite a couple of friends to join you on this journey... Text them, send an email, make a phone call or post it on social media. The 'Starting a Small Group' document in the resources below has a few tips. We can help too! There are always people looking to join new groups!
Think about when & where you want to meet (weekly or bi-weekly). Groups would typically meet in someone's home but currently, groups are meeting online! Our 'Hosting a Small Group' Document in the resources below will provide all the details on how to host the meetings.
Whether you decide to host your own group or simply join a group, you will need to complete the Small Group Inquiry Form. Once your form has been submitted, we will contact you to discuss the details. See 'Start your Small Group Journey Here!"
