My name is Wendy Scherwenka and on behalf of the leaders of the 17 small groups offered by St. Robert and Holy Family parishes, I would like to extend a very warm invitation to you. The weekly gatherings are a beautiful opportunity to strengthen and/or create a personal bond with Jesus – special and unique for you.
I agreed to participate not because I am a biblical scholar, but because I see this as an opportunity to marinate in the prayers and readings, discover how they speak to my heart and to connect with Jesus on a very personal level.
We have been meeting as a small group of leaders for the last 4 weeks, initially as a group of strangers. We spend our time praying, contemplating , reading bible passages, sharing insights , feelings & experiences – opening ourselves up to Jesus and each other. It’s very gentle and comfortable – and it just happens. I am seeing how this special time spent with Jesus affects each person in the group in amazingly different and beautiful ways. And for me personally, there has been a whole new life and light breathed into these words of scripture that I can feel deeply in my heart. I am so grateful and treasure the special bonds being formed and strengthened in my personal faith and with our community. It is a wonderful gift.
We would be honored to have you join us. There are many gatherings to choose from. You can contact Greg Kelsch (firstname.lastname@example.org, 332-9220) or Merridith Frediani (email@example.com, 962-1289) for more information or to sign up. We would love to hear from you by this Friday.
Blessings to you and have a fantastic day.
