Taking on the Desert Together

Is your prayer life making you feel like you’re in the desert alone? You don’t have to journey by yourself! Join a Connect Group and do Lent together.

All groups will begin meeting the week of FEBRUARY 22.

CLICK HERE to sign up. If you’ve already signed up, watch your email for an invite with Zoom link to the first meeting.

COUPLE’S GROUP
VIRTUAL: MONDAYS 7-8 PM
Maybe you’re like me and get to Holy Week and think, where did Lent go? So this year I twisted my husband’s arm just a little and we’re hosting a very casual Connect Group. Dean and I are grandparents and recently retired. We like the outdoors, family dinners and good conversation.  Connect Groups are so easy; no homework, no prep, just grab your favorite beverage and join us!
MEN’S GROUP
VIRTUAL: WEDNESDAYS 7-8 PM
We’re the “not holy-rollers men’s group” looking to share ideas and learn from each other. I don’t have answers, just questions.
As far as interests, I like to run, golf, and keep bees.
AGES 18-39
IN PERSON: TUESDAYS 6:10-7:10 PM
Hi! We are Makenzie & Emily. We are both young adults new-ish to St. Mary. Our group will create a casual spot for young adults (18 – 39) to meet each other, share life – and life with Christ – together.
ALL ARE WELCOME
VIRTUAL: TUESDAYS 6:30-7:30 PM
Two of my loves are travel and literature. I saw the movie Mary Poppins when I was 3 and she became “my princess”. I was all about Mary Poppins, and still am. I even traveled to London where I was able to find P.L. Travers home. So I would like to invite you to join my Connect Group so we can talk about more great literature – the Bible and how it’s message impacts us today. Do you have a favorite author in the Bible? Or perhaps just a favorite inspirational author, someone who has helped deepen your understanding of and relationship with Jesus? Please come and share!
WOMEN’S GROUP
IN PERSON: MONDAYS 7-8 PM
Take a break from your hectic life and join other women like you as we laugh, learn, and encourage each other in our walk with Jesus.
WOMEN’S GROUP
IN PERSON/VIRTUAL HYBRID: WEDNESDAYS 9-10 AM
Our Connect Group is grounded in a love for hospitality, friendship, laughter, service, and adventures of the heart, mind and when it is safe, on the road as well.
ALL ARE WELCOME
VIRTUAL: THURSDAYS 6:30-7:30 PM
Father Bill’s Connect Group will share prayer and life’s ups and downs together, in the light of desert detours through Lent. We will be flexible and open to setting aside the format, so we can just be with each other and listen. And who knows, Fr Bill just may throw in some insights from Pope Francis and other holy women and men now and then!
