Welcome to the second season of Arise Together in Christ, our new Parish process of renewal and evangelization that will help us to grow closer to Christ and reach out to others. Some of us have already experienced meeting and sharing in small communities. For others, this may be a new experience.

We are coming together as a group, but we are not just meeting together as a discussion or study group. Rather, we are gathering in small Christian communities as a sharing group, open to the Spirit of God, seeking to grow in faith and in our relationship with God and one another.
