Grow: Discipleship Groups

God loves us just as we are. But He isn’t done with us yet!

Sign up for a Discipleship Group and take your faith for a deep dive.

Discipleship Groups are offered by parishioners for everyone to participate in. The content is approved by Fr. Mike and the Senior Leadership Team and these Groups are offered to you to grow in your understanding of your faith and in your personal relationship with God.

 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3: 18

Discovery Faith Study

What was Jesus’ main reason for becoming man and coming to earth? If you were to die tonight and God asked you “Why should I let you into Heaven?”, what would you say? Many Catholics spend their entire lives experiencing the different aspects of our faith as if they were pieces of a puzzle, recognizing the pieces, but unsure of how they fit together to create the full picture. The Discovery faith study puts the Catholic faith into perspective, diving into the most basic truths that make up the richness of Catholicism. Over the course of six weekly 1.5hour meetings, you will journey deeper into the heart of your faith and receive a clear understanding of the Gospel message. Come join us, you won’t regret it! DISCOVERY will be offered at two different times in the week by two hosts: Angèle Barry and Katia Dahan.  There is a $10 charge for materials

Sacred Music

Our organist Kerry Taylor will be presenting an overview of the music of the Church in a series of four talks. The four sessions will include periods of listening to music and discussion of issues raised by the talks.  The titles of the presentations are:

  • January 17th : In the Beginning (“What’s up with all the chanting?”);
  • January 24th:  Gregory’s Grandchildren: The Golden Age of Catholic Music;
  • January 31: The Protestant Reformation (“Why should the devil have all the good tunes?”);
  • February 7th: Vatican II and After – the Reform and the Reform of the Reform.

God’s Great Love Story

Our Seminarian Jacques Geleyn will be offering a couple of Discipleship Groups. This Discipleship Group aims at inspiring people to grab their Bible at home, read it and pray with it. This will be attained by introducing people to what the Bible is, how it is constructed, and how, despite the historical diversity (72 books, numerous authors, different places and circumstances), it still tells us one story: the love story of God for His people.

Prayer – Lifelong Friendship

Also hosted by Jacques Geleyn, this Discipleship Group aims at introducing participants to the great schools of catholic prayer such as : Carmelite, Ignatian, Monastic, among others. By exploring these schools of prayer (in theory and in practice), people will have a better knowledge and experience of what prayer is, of its diversity, and that they all have the same goal: to establish a long-lasting and fruitful relationship with God. The session will also inspire participants to seek a school of prayer and developing a prayerful life.
