ARISE is a seasonal parish-centered process of spiritual renewal which empowers individuals and communities to encounter God in everyday life, deepen and share faith, and connect faith with action.
During the five seasons, each of which lasts for six weeks, small faith-sharing groups of 6-8 people gather in people’s homes or at the Parish Centre for 90 minutes to reflect upon their faith, grow as a community and develop a closer relationship with God and one another.
Goals of the ARISE Process
To establish a closer relationship with Christ by sharing and witnessing the Word of God in scripture
To develop vibrant communities of faith
To create deeper relationships among parishioners and across diverse ethnic groups
