Small Faith Communities


Small Faith Communities

 Small faith communities have existed at St. John the Baptist for over 10 years, and members of these communities have found them to be very enlightening and life giving. The communities gather to pray, study, share faith, and encourage each other in their faith life. The small faith communities meet on different days and times (see below), and each community selects their own book or bible study.   During Advent and Lent, additional groups are created and use a program designated by the parish. . Some meet at St. John’s and others meet in individual’s homes. These communities are always open to new members. If you are already a member please contact your facilitator to find out the plan for your community. If you would like to join a community, the list is below. Or, maybe you would like to start a new one! Just contact Eric Hollis,  at 513-367-9086 ext. 221 or ehollis@stjb.net. 

If you are interested in growing in knowledge about your faith, growing in your relationship with Jesus Christ, and getting to know members of the parish community, this may be right for you!
