ARISE LENT 2017 - New Heart, New Spirit will begin the week of February 26 and end the week of April 2
SIGNUPS WILL BEGIN THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 4 AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 12 IN THE GATHERING SPACE OF CHURCH, IN THE PARISH OFFICE UNTIL FRIDAY FEBRUARY 24 or YOU MAY REGISTER ONLINE - JUST CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE.
What is ARISE? Arise is an opportunity for parishioners to come together, study and reflect on the Gospels and form faith relationships with one another. Sessions are 90 minutes in length and are structured around the Gospels that fit the theme for the six weeks.
There will be six faith sharing sessions that invite us to New Hearts, New Spirits. The first session helps us to see Lent as a time to review our life choices and to measure them against the Scripture. Lent is a time to get in touch with who we really are, and who we are called to be. The rest of the season invites us to look at the power of forgiveness, the Church as the home for all God’s family, and freedom and peace as the first fruits of the Resurrection. Please join us for six wonderful and challenging weeks of Lent.
What makes up ARISE group? ARISE sessions consist of 8 - 12 people who form a Small Christian Community. One person in the group will be designated as the Leader and will make sure that everyone is comfortable, knows what is going on, and what to do. The Leaders are all trained by the ARISE consultants so that each participant will have the best experience possible.
When do the ARISE sessions take place? What day/days do YOU have 90 minutes to set aside to take part in the ARISE process? Rather than US telling YOU when sessions will meet we want to hear from you what times you are available. You may indicate on the form any and all times that you are available. Once we get the signups sheet in from those who wish to participate we will take that information and form groups around YOUR schedule. Each participant that signs up will be contacted by their Small Community Leader with the location and exact date and time.
How much does it cost to participate? $20.00 for an individual $30.00 for a couple who wish to share the ARISE book $10.00 for Seniors 65+
Please let us know if you do not have the funds to participate. We have scholarships.
