SMALL CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES

Come grow in faith, together!

“We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God.”
– Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

There is a long tradition in the church of small faith communities meeting for sharing faith and mutual support, for study, and for prayer. A Small Christian Community (SCC) is a group of 6-12 individuals who meet on a regular basis to connect their lives more closely with the Christian stories in the Catholic tradition. They pray together, socialize together, and are actively involved in social justice issues.

As a participant, you can…

  • meet and befriend other parishioners
  • “break open” and reflect on the Sunday Scriptures
  • build community and face-to-face church
  • share faith and serve the spiritual journey of others
  • grow in discipleship in Jesus Christ
  • help to bring about “the Kingdom of God” in the world

To identify a SCC in your area or for help launching a new Small Christian Community, contact Christy Hebert, Coordinator of Fiath Formation, at (864) 643-2587 or christy@saclemson.org.
