Coming to Risen Savior in Fall 2019: JustFaith Catholic
JustFaith is a program of JustFaith Ministries that invites participants to live more simply and compassionately, and to respond to the needs of the world. This small group program will help you explore today’s issues through the lens of your Catholic faith, engage in dialogue around those issues, and formulate a personal/group response.
Groups are co-facilitated by two participants from the group, using materials provided upon registration.
JustFaith includes twenty-four 2 ½-hour sessions, broken into four phases of six sessions. An optional fifth phase, a three-session discernment phase, completed in one 6-hour day or broken into three 2-hour sessions, is highly recommended. All sessions include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationship-building. Some sessions also include videos and/or guest speakers.
Participants deepen their understanding through in-depth reading of several books and viewing a number of DVDs and online materials. The most essential resource is the community formed through the JustFaith process.
To broaden perspectives, each of the 4 phases include an immersion where participants visit local organizations to learn from the stories of those living and working on the margins of society.
Opening and Commissioning Retreats frame the process. The optional Discernment Phase invites participants to explore how they might live with a deeper sense of purpose.
We are excited to announce that, thanks to a generous grant from the Catholic Community Foundation, we will be able to offer this program and all of the associated materials free of charge to parishioners who have not yet experienced the JustFaith program!
We are hoping to form two small groups of 6-10 participants each:
one that will meet here at Risen Savior on Wednesday mornings
one that will meet on Thursday evenings in the home of Steve Wilk
