Living Your Strengths
Have you ever asked yourself what God wants you to do? Do you know what your God-given talents are? Can you recognize the God-given talents of others? Our parish regularly offers “Living Your Strengths” for adults and “StrengthsQuest” for teens to help you recognize your unique, God-given strengths and understand how they impact your roles, relationships and faith.
Moving On After Moving In
Moving On After Moving In is a small-group program for women who are new to Charlotte and looking to meet others, offer and receive personal and spiritual support, learn about Charlotte and the St. Gabriel community. The program is based on the book Moving On After Moving In by Susan Miller. Read more about this program here.
Within our large parish, we have formed Cluster Groups to create small faith communities. As a new member, you and your family will be assigned to one of these groups based on your street address and zip code. While some clusters are more active than others, we hope that you will find fellowship and hospitality in your group. For more information, please contact Denise Murphy, Cluster Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
