The Journey/El Camino
The Journey helps parishioners and their friends refresh and renew their intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. The sessions, lasting 90 minutes, are user-friendly and easily evoke a sense of spirituality and prayer. After getting to know each other, participants hear a passage from Scripture. They then watch a video – which links their everyday experience with the experience of one of Jesus’ early followers— followed by reflection and sharing. Sessions conclude with contemplation in silence on an aspect of Jesus, prayer with each other, and hospitality. Each session has follow-up material to further learning and reflection during the week.
These sharing sessions are a part of a range of other resources for parishes, including a Weekly Reflection which parishioners can take home, and a six-week devotional to deepen spiritual growth.
