Faith Sharing Groups meet regularly to share Scripture, sing, pray, give thanks, intercede for personal intentions and for the needs of our parish community and the wider church. Everybody is welcome to attend.
The basic outline of each meeting includes a reading from Scripture and we each share that part of the reading which relates to us and our lives. We then share with the group what has been our main concern, ways in which we have helped others or what has inspired us since we last met. We end with praying for the needs of the group, our Parish and those we know.
Apart from the readings and prayer there is much laughter and shared joy as well as the friendship that has grown through praying together and sharing our everyday concerns. Often the meetings are referred to a 'oases of calm in our busy lives'.
