Continue the Journey of Faith Together


Small faith-sharing groups have been instruments of spiritual renewal and growth, reconciliation, and friendship throughout our Archdiocese during ARISE Together in Christ and Lenten Longings. Find out how to keep those communities thriving, and how to get them started, while deepening Catholic faith with
Why Catholic?
Journey through the Catechism.

This parish-based process gives Catholics the solid foundation and confidence needed to express their faith, live it in daily life, and reach out to others in faith. Participants explore important teachings on prayer, the Creed, sacraments, and Christian living through Sacred Scripture and the Catechism.

Read Cardinal O'Malley's message to all Pastors and Parish Administrators.

Information Sessions were held in May and June to give pastors, parish staff, parish and catechetical leaders an opportunity to learn more about the process.

Check back for upcoming workshop dates this fall.
