Community—Spiritual Growth—Love—Support

One of the best ways to engage with the St. Joan community is by being part of a small group. You can do this by taking an Alpha course or Bible Study, then continuing in a small group with your new friends. Or you can join an existing small group that is accepting new members.

Small groups are a wonderful way to connect with other people, make and sustain friendships, grow spiritually, and experience and give each other love and support.

If you would like to invite others to join your small group and be listed on this page, contact Rosemarie at
