Adult Faith Formation – Lenten Faith Sharing Groups

Faith Sharing Groups

Faith sharing groups offer the opportunity to join with other parishioners during Lent to reflect on selected readings. Please consider if one of these groups may be of interest to you as we journey through Lent to Easter.


If you are new to the parish, they are a way to meet other members of St. Gertrude, and for “seasoned” parishioners, they are a way to renew and deepen relationships.


Below is a list of groups offered during the coming Lenten season. Sign up sheets are available on the table in the back of Church.
