Discovering how sharing faith in a 'small community' listening to others, and learning from their experience, can help us grow in knowledge and in the understanding of our own faith.

The Agency for Evangelisation supports and promotes small communities and assists parishes in setting up new communities, and produces seasonal faith-sharing resources in Lent and in the Autumn.

HOW FAITH SHARING IN A SMALL COMMUNITY WORKS

Autumn 2021- "With A Father's Love

Autumn 2021

The new faith-sharing resource for the Autumn Season, “With a Father’s Love” has been launched. This has been specially produced for the Year of Saint Joseph, and takes us on a journey of discovery through the Apostolic Letter of Pope Francis, Patris Corde.

We are deeply grateful to Monsignor Peter Fleetwood of the Archdiocese of Liverpool for preparing the resource for us, and I know it will find a deep resonance with many in your own communities.

Please consider how this resource could help you with the rebuilding we are all having to do as we emerge from the worst of the pandemic. Up to now, parish faith-sharing groups have met in October and early November but there is great flexibility in this resource. You will know what works best.

Autumn 2018

The theme for the World Meeting of Families in Ireland in August 2018 was, 'The Gospel of the Family means Joy for the World'. This faith-sharing resource for small communities, 'Holy Families: The Joy of Love, an exploration of Amoris Laetitia', is a proclamation of this same truth. Exploring themes from the Holy Father’s 2016 Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, this resource seeks to explore the beauty and blessing, the joys and challenges of marriage and family life over six sessions. The sessions have been written by theologian Pia Matthews, Bishop John Sherrington and Bishop John Wilson.

SESSION 1 – The Journey – love at the heart of the family

SESSION 2 – Love is – the fruitfulness of married love

SESSION 3 – I Will – the experiences and challenges of families today

SESSION 4 – I Do – discovering the beauty and dignity of marriage

SESSION 5 – A Family of Families – accompaniment and discernment

SESSION 6 – Home is a Holy Place – family of prayer, hospitality and reaching out
