Small Christian Communities During Lent


Come join us! 
Spend some time of reflection for 
five Tuesdays this Lent



Small Christian Communities (SCC) are small groups of parishioners who gather regularly for prayer and reflection. They come together to reflect on the scriptures for the coming Sunday using a process that connects our faith life with our lived experiences.  

You are invited to experience reflecting as a Small Christian Community for five Tuesdays in Lent at St. Matthew's Chapel. February 28th, March 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th. The morning group starts at 10:00 AM and ends by 11:30 AM. The evening group starts at 7:00 pm. and ends by 8:30 pm

If you want to join us and experience what a Small Christian Community is like, click HERE to register by Ash Wednesday, 2/22/2023, so we can plan for it. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Mike Berstene at: deacon.mike@cath-comm.org or Deacon Ron Freedman at: deacon.ron@cath-comm.org
