Small Faith Sharing Communities form the backbone of adult Faith Formation at St. Michael Parish. Facilitating a small group is a great leadership opportunity that draws others into deeper relationships with Christ and his Church. Facilitators should be willing to open their homes and hearts, leading the group in prayer and reflection. Our facilitators gather several times a year for prayer and reflection with Fr. Jim, as we extend his pastoral care out to more of our faith family.
Facilitating a small group is tremendously rewarding! Here’s what some of our facilitators have said:
There was a lot of relationship building, strong sharing and open hearts.”
Just like a teacher gets more out of the class than the students, as a facilitator I gained so much from the members.”
We look forward to continuing and adding new members.”
The small faith sharing group allowed me to meet new people from our parish that I had seen at church but never formally met. What wonderful folks to get to know and study with each week! I learned so much about scripture and appreciate the sharing of everyone involved. I really liked the DVD provided as Fr. Jim always summed up the readings for us. Lastly, meeting weekly helped me to be prepared for Sunday mass. What a delightful study! Thank you.” – Nancy
We had a great time! Only five, but we bonded well. All materials easy to use and well prepared. DVD was well done and appropriate. Would be willing to do again!” – Bill
