FAITH CIRCLES March 2020 | Download Now!


"For where two or three meet in my name,
I shall be there with them."


MATTHEW 18:20

We are pleased to provide you with your monthly batch of Faith Circles for three weeks of March 2020 spanning the 1st Sunday of Lent to the 5th Sunday in Lent (Year A).

Whether through participating in Alpha, Lenten or Advent groups, people have realised the joy and fruitfulness of journeying in faith with people they have come to know, love and trust. All the evidence shows that living and growing in our faith is best done as part of a small group—turning rows into circles.

As the use of Alpha continues to grow in our diocese, Faith Circles is the ideal post-Alpha resource for continuing to build and develop strong community and faith relationships with God and one another.

Faith Circles is free, no strings attached, we just want Catholics to be nurtured by doing life and faith in groups, not on your own—you can print as many copies as you like.
