It is a small group of parishioners who gather in His name to PRAY together in their homes… REFLECT on Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church… SHARE their faith and grow spiritually … SUPPORT each other, the parish and the community in charity.
“They devoted themselves to the teachings of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.” ( Acts 3:42 )
Jesus promises to be with us in community. It is his gift to us. He calls us to holiness as ‘a people’ as well as individually. Our faith response is both communal and personal. By praying and sharing their faith the members of small Christian communities (SCC ) are able to reflect on God’s movement in their lives as well as in the lives of the others. This nourishing environment helps all to grow in fellowship with Christ and each other. It is this fellowship that gives birth to joy, the fruit of the Holy Spirit, the infallible sign of His presence.
The SCC mission is to be a bridge and support for all parishioners who wish to enrich their faith life and experience fellowship in Christ.
“Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them” ( Matthew 18:20 ).
“No one can believe alone. We believe because we are being carried by the faith of others and by our faith we support that of others ” (Catechism of the Catholic Church).
