A Very VIS Lent...Coming to a Living Room Near You!

Ash Wednesday is on February 22 this year! Another lasting tradition at Visitation is the annual ingathering of friends, neighbors, and family into small groups during the six weeks of Lent. These Small Christian Communities (SCC) are a way of "being church" to each other, not just on Sunday but every day. This is not a new concept: Jesus often gathered a small group of disciples around him when he taught (Mt. 5:1). And after the Resurrection event early Christians met in small groups in each other's homes to listen to God's Word, to remember Jesus, to share faith and to break bread. Use the form below to sign up your group, start a new group or join a group this Lent. Or check out one of THESE OPEN SMALL GROUPS.

EACH OF THE SIX WEEKS IN LENT. In addition to weekly reflections and discussion questions from the "At Home With the Word" Scripture resource, the VIS Faith Formation Team has created a resource for registered groups using the 2023 parish book by Sr. Joan Chittister, with discussion questions prepared by Benetvision publishers. Consider starting a Small Lent Group with one of these themes using chapter bundles curated by the Faith Formation Team members.
