Faith Sharing Groups

Partners on your faith journey

 Join a group of people sharing life and faith, valuing one another, connecting with the church’s story, and reaching out in service.

More than a prayer, service, or bible study group, a faith sharing group is like the church — it is all of the above.

Together with your group, you’ll explore how we live as Catholics on our spiritual journeys. Bring an open heart and a questioning mind.

  • Small groups of 10–12 adults meet weekly for approximately 6-8 weeks t at The Basilica or in a member’s home.
  • Trained volunteer facilitators coordinate each group and ensure that the experience benefits everyone involved.
  • A booklet leads your group through the sessions, which include prayer, scripture, faith sharing, and service.
  • Participants will be put into groups based upon their meeting day/time and location preferences.
  • Faith Sharing Group are offered periodically. Please check back for upcoming events.

Why do we need faith sharing groups?

Catholics, lost in the size of today’s modern parishes, still look for more significant ways to share their spiritual life and hopes.  Faith groups nourish this sense of belonging.

Our fast paced lives leave us little time to reflect on the meaning of life. Faith groups give you a chance to slow down, recall the day or week in quiet time and listen to yourself and others.

 “The group of believers was one in mind and heart. No one said that any of their belongings was their own, but they all shared with one another everything they had. Day after day they met as a group in the temple, and they had their meals together in their homes, eating with glad and humble hearts, praising God, and enjoying the good will of all the people.”  

Acts 4.32, 2.46

What happens at faith sharing groups?

  • Prayer: We recognize that God is the center of our lives and the initiator of grace to provide change.
  • Sharing: We reflect upon and share God’s action in our lives. This deepens our own belief and understanding of God’s love for each one of us.
  • Mutual Support: We're not alone in our struggles. We need one another to live courageous, faith-filled lives.
  • Continued Learning: We read and reflect on the Sunday Gospel because being a formed and informed Catholic Christian is important.
  • Outreach: We are called by God to live in communion with God and one another. Our concern, care and love of others is a measure of our love for God. Through outreach that we share in the mission of Jesus.
