Connect Groups
Last edited 31st August 2015

I see connect groups as the key thing that the Catholic church may have missed. Hardly do I see parishes with active and lively connect groups of all ages, races, interests and locations. We have large congregations, bigger groups, outreaches, little tiny prayer groups here and there, random events, but we don’t have church connect groups. Those groups are the heart of the church, it’s life and foundation. Nurturing people from the ground up, inside out. Growing the church and growing people in faith. We don’t wanna do life alone or do church alone. So for those people coming new to your ministry or church, this is your way to follow up with them, invite them to a connect group.

Last edited 5th August 2015

The Shroud of Turin has different meanings for many people: some see it as an object of veneration, others a forgery, still others a medieval curiosity. For one Jewish scientist, however, the evidence has led him to see it as a meeting point between science and faith.
