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.
Our theme for the fall will be “Encountering Christ Today.”
Small Groups will begin meeting the week of October 7. The groups will meet once a week for six weeks for 90 minutes at a time convenient for group members and typically will meet at the home of one of the group members. Group meetings will wrap up before Thanksgiving (by November 17)
