Faith Formation Opportunity
Looking for Small Group Leaders
The office of Faith Formation is planning to organize small group faith sharing opportunities for the Summer and we are looking for people to lead them. Group membership would number between 6-12 people ideally, and the six weekly sessions (or bi-weekly, depending on schedules of the group) could be held on the day/time/location of your choice. We will be using the resource, "Believe" from The Evangelical Catholic (published by The Word Among Us). If you are interested, call Sue O'Connell in the office, or email her at email@example.com.
