Trinity Faith Sharing Groups
"Participating in Trinity Faith Sharing gives me an enriched experience in Mass;
a community of folks sharing / participating in my faith journey;
and articulation of spiritual gifts that 'hit and sit' with me."
- Summer 2023 participant
Holy Trinity's Ignatian Spirituality & Prayer Ministry invites parishioners to participate in a small faith sharing group for one or more eight-week one-hour sessions this fall. Trinity faith sharing groups offer parishioners a chance to meet in a small group to discuss the Sunday scriptures and the ways they intersect with our lives.
Fall 2023 Session: weeks from September 24 through the week of November 12th.
Registration for the Fall 2023 Session is closed. If you'd like to participate, please email Catherine Heinhold at email@example.com to see if the following sessions still have room:
Sundays, 10:15am, in person at the parish center
Thursdays, 12:05pm, Zoom
What is Faith Sharing?
Faith sharing is an invitation to deepen faith and deepen community. It focuses more on the heart of things, and God's interaction in our daily lives, than on scripture study. Although it won't be the focus, information on the context and meaning of the scriptures will be provided to the groups to support their core emphasis on finding God in all things. Our groups use a set format (provided at the bottom of this page) that incorporates Ignatian practices (including sharing spiritual consolations and desolations, and listening to invitations from God) designed to encourage discernment.
"Being a part of this group has helped to tether me to community and God,
and helped to broaden my perspective."

When and Where?
For the Fall 2023 session, some groups will meet in-person at the Parish Center and some will meet on Zoom. The groups will begin meeting the week of September 24th, and will meet once a week for eight weeks. Each meeting is one hour. We ask that you commit to attending the eight gatherings, with no more than two anticipated absences.
Sunday, 10:15am, in person in the Parish Center
Mondays, 9:30am, Zoom (full)
Mondays, 7:00pm, in person in the Parish Center
Tuesdays, 7:00pm, Zoom
Thursdays, 8:15am, in person (HTS parents only - we'll also open a Wednesday group if there's enough interest)
Thursdays, 12:05pm, Zoom
If none of these times work for you, there is space on the form to indicate others that might.
If we aren't able to accommodate everyone, priority is given to Holy Trinity parishioners.
Please see the sidebar for other scripture-based faith sharing opportunities at Holy Trinity.
"I feel more connected to the Sunday readings. I have grown in my own faith. I have been blessed so deeply by the other participants in their willingness to share with me both their struggles and their joy. I feel a strong desire to continue to engage regularly in faith sharing with others.
It was very life giving to participate."
