Mosaic O dark block lettersSmall Faith Sharing Groups

St. George parish is introducing the gift of small faith sharing groups during the season of Lent (6 weeks.) WE are inviting parishioners to form groups of 8 to 12 people who could meet regularly at any time over the six weeks (February 10 to March 23) focusing on the upcoming Sunday Gospel. It will be a chance to pray, share and journey together during this most sacred season. The groups can vary. It could be a group of friends, people who live in the same neighbourhood or in the same building complex.

Resources for the small groups are provided by the parish. The Suggested 90 minute gathering include:Small Groups

  • Welcome and Social time prior to the time of prayer
  • Opening prayer and check in (how is everyone doing?)
  • Listing to the Warm Up gospel reflection from the parish website
  • Using the “Action Guide” available on the parish website or from the facilitator to help reflect on the gospel reading and how it relates to your life
  • Closing Prayer

We can also have people sign up who are interested but do not have their own group. You can sign up on-line or at the Welcome Desk in the narthex and we will help you join or form a group.

We are also looking for facilitators (or hosts) to help lead our small faith sharing groups.The responsibilities for a host include:

  • Host the group at your house/residence
  • Lead the group through the evening agenda of reflection and sharing
  • Coordinate members of the group to bring snacks to share
  • Access to the weekly Warm Up gospel reflection and Action Guide
  • Maintain communications with your group members

Facilitator workshops are taking place on the following dates. If you are interested, please come to of these two gatherings.

Monday, January 18 from 7:00 to 8:15 pm
