Small Group Faith Sharing

We will be hosting a “Small Faith Sharing Group Callout” on Wednesday, February 20, at 6:30 pm at Mi Ranchito restaurant. Our first step will be to see who has a particular idea for a small group & who is willing to serve as a facilitator or facilitators. We will gather to hear your ideas, share ours, put our heads together, & see where we go from here. We would like to form at least 3 small faith sharing groups this year. If you can make it to the callout, please contact Fr. Rick at 696-7307 or by email at fatherrickholy@gmail.com – or Glenda Faitak at 730-4048 or by email at glendafaitak@gmail.com no later than Wednesday, February 13th so we know how many to expect.
