Small Groups now forming for
“Forming Intentional Disciples”
Recently we invited 20 members of the Parish community to take part in a 6-week book study of Sherry Weddell’s book “Forming Intentional Disciples”. In this study, we learned to recognize the different thresholds of conversion: were people at the trust stage? The curiosity stage? Or maybe they were already at the “openness” stage. We learned what to do to help seekers get to the next level on their path to Jesus!
Each participant came away from the book study with more tools to help them evangelize in their daily lives. A good majority of these 20 people will now be heading up their own small group book studies of this exciting, life-changing book. If you want to be a part of one of these 6 to 8 week book studies, please call the parish office and ask for Adelae (972-243-7104 ext. 46) or email her at email@example.com. A form also will be available in the Narthex soon where you can indicate your preference for evening of the week or time of day that you are most available to be a participant. The groups will be kept very small, so let us know immediately if you want to participate.
The St. Therese Study * A 10-Week Spiritual Enrichment Program for Adults
Based on the book I Believe in Love: A Personal Retreat Based on the Teachings of St. Therese of Lisieux by Father Jean CJ D’elbee
The book and the study is a program designed to help each of us more fully understand the depth of God’s love for us. We will develop a greater understanding of the Gospel and the beauty and importance of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Presented in a small group setting, this “Joyful Journey” will help us to be better parents, spouses, friends, neighbors and apostles for Christ. It is a practical guide for each person, no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. It is not an examination of our past. It is a tool for spiritual living that can be applied to all that we do each day.
