What are Connect Groups?
A Connect Group is a mid-sized home group of varying numbers of people (8-10 on average). These groups are lay led and are places where parishioners are known, cared for and loved. Connect Group members gather for a pot luck meal, a time of prayer, a program through formed.org or evanglization.com, reflection and discussion. Connect Groups are relatively new to our parish and are now being formed.
How do I join a Connect Group?
If you are 18 years or older, there are two ways of joining a Connect Group.
The first way is to take the Alpha Course at St. Catharine’s. Most Groups are born out of the Alpha Course, so the best place to start is by taking Alpha.
While you can join a Connect Group without taking Alpha first, we strongly encourage that you do take Alpha.
We do have some Connect Groups that are open to anyone at anytime.
