Join us this Fall for the Fifth Season of ARISE Together in Christ, presented by RENEW International! ARISE is an opportunity to grow your faith with other parishioners in a small group setting. The first four seasons of Arise have been a big success, resulting in 10 small groups, some of which continue to meet outside of the actual Arise Season.
With three simple words, “Come and see…”, Jesus invited the Apostles to get to know him, and each other, as they traveled together in faith. This group of acquaintances, soon to be friends, accepted Jesus’ invitation and formed a small community.
ARISE is about building the same kind of small faith-sharing communities.
Gathering together to learn from their Teacher, the Apostles also nourished each other by sharing their stories. They supported each other, laughed and cried together, ate and prayed together. In the process, their faith grew and their lives were enriched.
ARISE is about people like you nourishing and supporting each other as you face the challenges of life.
With Christ as their center, the Apostles began a journey of faith which spanned their lifetimes and which bears fruit even today. As their spiritual lives grew, so did their commitment to serving the poor and the needy. Using their unique God-given gifts, they sought to transform the causes of injustice in their world.
“Come and See…”
Listen to your heart and accept the invitation! Come and learn more about ARISE, a process of spiritual renewal and evangelization that enables people to develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community, and reach out in service to others. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE FIRST FOUR SEASONS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FIFTH SEASON!
