GoodNews People

Good News


Faith, Hope, and Love in Action

The Good News People program is an engaging parish-wide, small group, community-building process. On this journey you are invited to pray, reflect, learn, discuss and grow into a deeper understanding of what it means to live as a disciple in today’s world.

Each session includes prayer, reflection on sacred scripture, teachings from the Catechism, stories of “Good News” people, discussion and sharing as well as a specific focus on a virtue for the week.

Goals of the Program:

1. To explore the call to discipleship and strengthen the bonds of community through prayer, reflection and action;

2. To learn more about the richness of the Catholic faith through scripture, the Catechism, Church teaching and the lives of the saints;

3. To find renewed hope in living the gospel and putting your faith into action.
