Lenten Small Groups
What is a Seton Small Group?
Groups of 6-12 meet casually at Seton or in parishioner homes over 7 weeks starting the week of 2/19/2023. Gather for 1 hour & 15 minutes and enjoy faith sharing and the company of others. You do not need to have any scriptural or theological knowledge— in fact sometimes that gets in the way. Come as you are!
What can I expect at a Seton Small Group?
Each session starts and ends with prayer. A launching question gets the conversation started. Next, read scripture together and engage in a facilitated conversation about what God is saying to us today. What does it mean for your daily life? Each week, there may be a practice or habit all are encouraged to try to strengthen our relationship with Jesus.
We are invited to share our joys and challenges along the way. God designed us to walk together. When we share our faith, others may come to know Jesus through us. When we listen to others, we hear God speak to us differently. Faith is strengthened when we support one another.
