During the Lenten and Advent seasons, there are Faith Sharing Groups that meet weekly, to discuss Scripture readings and their impact on our lives.  Facilitator training and guidelines are provided for these programs. 


Typical tasks and responsibilities: The leader must be present each time the group meets or arrange for someone else to lead the group.  Also, he or she must keep the group focused on the topic and be sure materials are provided for the group members.  Group members need to read the selection each week and participate in the discussion.

Required training or skills: Group leaders must take a one hour facilitator training session.

Approximate time commitment: Usually 60-90 minutes whenever the group meets. Some meet weekly, others monthly.

Location: At the Parish of Saint Mary or in homes of participants.
