Discover a proven pastoral resource
to invite and welcome inactive Catholics
Awakening Faith – Reconnecting with Your Catholic Faith is a small group process that helps inactive Catholics return to the Church. The group meets once a week for six weeks of conversation and socializing. The conversations are based on short, easy to read essays about spirituality, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, God’s mercy, the Mass, and the Church. The meetings foster reflection, prayer, and honest sharing in a setting of hospitality and acceptance.
A small community is formed and over the six weeks becomes a bridge to the larger Church community. Additional, optional essays allow the group to continue to meet if desired for another four weeks to discuss faith, love, marriage and divorce, and money.
The process is simple and inviting. A parish can offer Awakening Faith any time of the year and repeat it year after year. We offer both English and Spanish versions for the whole parish.
