The Theme for the Spring session will be "Change Our Hearts." Sessions will begin the week of February 24th, will run for 6 weeks (90 minutes per week), and will wrap up before Palm Sunday.
ARISE Together in Christ is a parish-centered process of spiritual renewal and evangelization that invites people to develop a closer relationship with Christ, deepen their faith, grow in community, and reach out in service to others.
No matter where participants are on their faith journey, they are attracted to the warm sense of welcome provided by the small-group setting, and the opportunities to meet Jesus Christ in scripture and explore faith’s connection to daily life.
In addition to the personal growth that occurs, ARISE offers many blessings to parishes:
- Vibrant small groups that strengthen faith and foster belonging in the parish
- A unifying experience that engages parishioners of various ages and ethnic groups
- Formed lay people to serve as leaders in the parish
- Faith-based action in and beyond the parish.
ARISE Together in Christ provides a total renewal experience for the parish, spiritually transforming people through the proven model of small-group faith sharing. It also offers parish enrichment opportunities and encourages works of charity and justice.
