Are you seeking to live a more fulfilling life?

Are you seeking to deepen your relationship with Jesus?

Are you seeking to dive in more deeply to your Catholic faith?

Communio groups are a great way to dive in more deeply in a relaxed atmosphere with several other people. They are all small groups with normally less than 12 people and meet weekly at the Parish or a home. Much of the year there is at least one group currently meeting. We offer a variety of days, times, and topics so that you can discern which group God may be calling you to.

 

Please see the list of groups below to register, or contact Phil Lewandowski for more information: phil@stjosephavonlake.org or 440.653.5638

Scripture: Acts of the Apostles

|  Mondays: 6:30PM - 8:00PM  |

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 pastor from a fellow Christian church. The leader has a wide breadth of knowledge in regards to the historical and socio-political situation of the time to bring the scriptures even more to life.

*This group begins September 19, 2022*

I Believe: The Catechism of the Catholic Church

|  Wednesdays: 10:00AM - 11:30AM  |

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.

*This group begins back up September 7, 2022*

Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist

|  Thursdays: 6:30PM - 8:00PM  |

Presence - The Mystery of the Eucharist is a formation program that has been carefully designed to help participants discover the powerful way that God is present to us in the Eucharist, inviting us into an intimate union with himself. We will examine the effects of the sacrament and its setting in the Mass, explore the scriptural foundation of the sacrament, and discover the beauty of Holy Communion and the transformative power of the grace God offers us in this sacrament.

The Presence series utilizes session videos and a Study Guide to communicate its message.
