ARISE Together in Christ is a new approach to spiritual renewal and deepening our faith, developing a closer relationship with Christ, growing in community and reaching out in service to others. In the ARISE program, we explore the intersection of faith and life and engage in real dialogue with other parishioners in small faith-sharing communities of 8 to 10 people. It’s great opportunity to meet your parish peers and connect with others on a spiritual level.

Season 5 for fall 2018 will be announced on this page soon!

There are small faith-sharing groups at OLQM for all ages, for men, women and couples. ARISE consists of five seasons, each season is six weeks in duration, with meeting options available almost every day of the week. Each meeting lasts about 90 minutes. Each season focuses on a particular theme.

Season 1, Encountering Christ Today, was held in October 2016. To launch the program we were asked to reflect on what it means to encounter Christ today through faith sharing.

Season 2, themed Change Our Hearts and reflecting on the central call of Ash Wednesday to conversion, was completed during Lent 2017.

Season 3,  In the Footsteps of Christ, commenced October 8, 2017 and concluded with the start of Advent. We examined what it means that Christ walks with us on our path through life

Season 4, New Heart, New Spirit, on themes of forgiveness and reconciliation, commenced February 11, 2018 and ran for 6 weeks during Lent 2018.

Future seasons will be announced on this page.
