Advent Scripture Sharing Groups

Advent Scripture Sharing  Groups

Ever considered being part of or forming a small group  that commits to meeting weekly during Advent for a half hour to pray, reflect and chat together? 

Would you consider joining such a group as part of your 2019 Advent Spiritual Exercises?

There are a number of such groups around the Elphin diocese. 

Please contact Justin Harkin (087 6171526 / if you would like to receive contact details for such a group in your area or if you would like support in forming a small group.


Advent Resources
The diocese provides Advent Scripture Sharing Groups with two resources. 

The first is a short A5 booklet that can be printed on A4 pages (print pages double-sided, flipping on short edge), based on the Prayer of the Church, which each group can follow during the course of each weekly meeting.  This can be downloaded below or requested via email by contacting Justin  @ / 087 6171526.

Advent Scripture Sharing Booklet

The second is a series of A4 pages, each containing a Sunday Gospel passage and reflection for each of the four Sundays of Advent.  These are read and discussed as part of the weekly group prayer experience.
