We are so excited that St. Joseph Parish will be continuing our dynamic faith-sharing experience, Communio Groups, this fall. These groups take small-group sharing, reflection and prayer to the next level. They allow for each member to walk the journey of faith with spiritual friends while deepening one’s relationship with Jesus. If you are interested or need more info, contact Phil Lewandowski by email at phil@stjosephavonlake.org or phone, 440-653-5638.

 

4 options so far this fall:

 

1. "Scripture: The Gospel of Luke (Part 1)"

        When: Mondays; beginning on 9/27 from 6:30-8:00pm (ending date TBD)

        Where: St. Joseph Parish/Social Hall/Gathering Area

        What: “The Word of God is living and effective.” We will dive into the treasure-trove that is the Word of God. We will learn not only how to         read scripture, but how to allow God to speak through it so we can better understand our current lived circumstances with the eyes of         God. This will be an “ecumenical group” meaning that we will be using the Catholic “Little Rock Bible Study” resources, but this group will         be led by a retired Protestant pastor. This will offer unique opportunities to learn more about our brothers and sisters in Christ of other         faiths. We plan to offer the follow-up Part 2 in the Spring.

 

2. "I Believe": a study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on Wednesday Mornings

        When: Wednesday; 9/29 – 11/17 from 10:00-11:30am

        Where: St. Joseph Parish/Social Hall/Gathering Area

        What: This group is perfect if you want a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith as presented in the Catechism without reading the entire Catechism...which can be daunting! We will use the "United States Catholic Catechism for Adults" as our guidebook reflecting on a chapter each week on the major topics within the Catechism.

 

3. "Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life"

        When: Wednesday; 9/29 – 11/17 from 6:30-8:00pm

        Where: St. Joseph Parish/Social Hall/Gathering Area

        What: “Jesus is either a liar, lunatic, or Lord. Those are the 3 options.” This group will be perfect for someone who wants to encounter         Jesus is a deeper way. Understanding who He really is allows us to enter more deeply into our own conversations with Him in prayer. We         will use the videos and book entitled “Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life” from Ascension Press as our guide.

 

4. "The Search: Answering Life’s Fundamental Questions"

        When: Thursdays; 9/30 – 11/18 from 6:30-8:00pm

        Where: St. Joseph Parish/Social Hall/Gathering Area

        What: We are offering this beautiful, inspiring video series once again this fall for those that missed it or want to dive back in once more         for more treasures! It seeks to answer the more basic questions we have such as, “Who Am I?”, “What is my purpose?” and “Am I really         saved?
