Discipleship Groups

Discipleship Group

To follow Jesus is to commit to lifelong learning and growth. Like Jesus’ disciples, our walk with the Lord today is not one lived in isolation but rather one immersed in community and enriched by authentic friendship with others. Whether at a home or at the parish, in the company of friends (8 – 10 in a group), Discipleship Groups provide a place of deep transformation where adults can be known, loved, and cared for as they strive to deepen their friendship with Jesus and one another.

Below is a list profile for each DG. If you are interested in joining a DG, please click the Connect with a Discipleship Group button.
