Hosting is simple!  Here's what you need to know:

  • Invite family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to join you in your home for the 5- week series.  The ideal group size is 3 to 12 people.
  • You pick the time and day of week to meet.  Groups should begin meeting week of February 26th.  Groups usually meet for 90 minutes.
  • Series includes a DVD and an easy, host-friendly booklet that helps guide the weekly discussions.  DVD coordinates with booklet and provides weekly message from a local priest and inspiring stories.
  • All HOSTS are asked to register their group  (even if your group is full).  Note:  If your group has multiple hosts, only one host needs to register.
  • The church office will help match participants looking for a group with those groups that indicate they have additional space.
  • Hosts pick up the DVD and participant booklets (1 per group member) after Masses the weekend of February 17 &18 or from the church office beginning February 20 (Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm)
Collecting the Participant Fee
  • Hosts are asked to collect the $10/person participant fee at the first meeting and drop off or mail to the church office, Attn: Cathy Esposito.  


Connect with others this Lent, as you grow in your relationship with Jesus.
