Small Christian Communities - How to join them

 

These are their main characteristics of the Small Christian Communities:


•    They are grounded in faith in Jesus Christ, Scriptures and Tradition.

•    They are linked to other Christian communities primarily through the Eucharist.

•    They are bonded unto the large Christian Community – the Parish.

 

Small Christian communities are a model of evangelization seeking to build a "community of communities ...in which parish leaders receive an in-depth formation, uninvolved parishioners are invited to join faith-sharing groups, and parish organizations move toward being small church communities, revamping their meetings & allowing the Spirit to open them to a new vision of parish." (Manual: For Leaders of Small Communities In Multi-Cultural Parishes, Betsy Lamb).

The Mission of a Small Christian Community is:

•    The evangelization of its members and the whole society, by bearing witness, teaching and learning to one another, bringing support to the People of God.

•    Enriching the Liturgical Life and Ministries of a Parish, in the service, especially to the poor and marginalized in our Society.

•    A Small Christian Community Gathers Regularly for mutual faith sharing with the Scripture reading and Reflection in prayer and worship.

•    Serving the Community of Faith and the Liturgical Life of a Parish: as Lectors, Ushers, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist etc.

•    Visiting the sick and the homebound: Bringing them Holy Eucharist and ministry of caring.
