ALL parents and grandparents are invited to come and spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament: Sept. 17, Oct. 22, Nov. 12, Dec. 10, Jan. 14, Feb. 25, Mar. 18, & Apr. 8.
Marist Way Small Faith Community
Marist Way groups are made of ten to twelve people who meet to share their faith, and to help each other recognize the presence of God in their everyday lives. The small faith community is a source of support and comfort while we walk a journey of deepening faith. The groups are informal, come as you are gatherings, and they meet at a member’s home once a month to pray, to share a meal, and to reflect on the movements of God within our daily lives. At Notre Dame Academy, our small faith groups focus particular attention on formation through the charisms of the Marist Order.
