In the Fall of 2016 St. Patrick Parish began a new scripture sharing program, ARISE Together in Christ. Arise is a six week, parish-centered process of spiritual renewal, evangelization and adult faith formation that enables members to develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community, and reach out in service to others.
Since it began ARISE has been offered two times a year in six-week blocks of time - each called a "Season". Each of these Seasons has a major gospel theme that is broken down into weekly themes. Small groups meet in homes of parishioners and in the Msgr. Parks Center on Wednesday evening.
ARISE is closely related to Scripture Faith Sharing Groups, small faith-sharing groups which have been instruments of spiritual renewal and growth, reconciliation, and friendship throughout St. Patrick Parish for over two decades.
Season IV: New Heart, New Spirit will begin during Lent 2018. Even if you missed the earlier sessions, you can still join for Season IV. Morning, afternoon, and evening groups will be available. We ask that you prayerfully consider joining us on this journey. Contact Gary Arkin in the Office of Religious Education for more information.
