Small Communities of Faith

The acronym GIFTS stands for Growing in Faith Through Sharing.  This is exactly what our small communities of faith process is all about.  Groups of between 8-12 parishioners meet weekly for a six-week period to read, pray and reflect on the upcoming Sunday Scriptures.  The groups usually meet in homes, but sometimes on the parish grounds.  The six-week ‘faith sharing seasons’ are in the Fall and the Spring, each ending just prior to Advent and just before Holy Week.  

Various resources are used to help facilitate the faith sharing groups.  Participants have found it is a wonderful way to share faith, fun and fellowship and grow in their appreciation for the Sacred Scriptures.  Groups become sources of friendship and community and often do outreach projects together and support one another in times of need.  

Registration for groups is held several weeks prior to Lent and Advent.  Please contact Mary Chajewski at 747-1321 or mchajewski@omosparish.com for more information.
