The Year of the Mass: Small Groups at Saint Raphael

At the call of Archbishop Hebda for renewed missionary discipleship across our local church, many members of Saint Raphael have created a thriving network of small groups. From Easter 2024 to Easter 2025, our Archbishop has declared a special “Year of the Mass,” with a special call to dive into that theme in small groups sometime this year. You might hear a call to join one of these groups, especially to deepen your love for Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist. You might be considering joining the Church, and want to learn more about the Mass. You might even hear the call to start your own group with people in your life who have been thirsting for communion with friends and with God. Come and See!

Now might not be the right time for you to make small groups a part of your life. You might be travelling most of Lent, you might not have found the right group, or all the groups might have been full. We want to create a waiting list with your ideas for a new future small group that you would join once we have enough interest and train a leader.

1. Email your idea for a future small group to
