We grow our faith through study and fellowship with others.

On the Sacraments and Resources pages there are a number of studies, groups and activities that are run by parishioners, as leaders and helpers, and many are looking for volunteers to contribute their time and talents to make these happen.  These are ways you can contribute to the spiritual growth of others while putting your own faith into action - and you will grow too!

Questions or suggestions can be made to the contacts indicated or in general to deaconkevin@stmauriceparish.com.

ALPHA

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal environment.  It is a series of sessions designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. The Alpha program at St. Maurice relies on volunteers to plan and run the program, set-up and clean-up on-site events, and to accompany those attending.  Training is provided.

Sacramental Preparation

Sacramental preparation is an important part of our growth in faith. See the main menu Sacraments if you wish to prepare to receive a sacrament. If you wish to help with sacramental preparation, contact the office or Deacon Kevin.

Baptism - Families preparing for the baptism of an infant work through a video series on FORMED.  We are looking for couples who can visit with them to answer questions and provide encouragement.  

Marriage - FOCCUS is a on line instrument designed to help couple identify differences and work difficulties before marriage.  Trained facilitators meet with the couples, provide them the links to the on-line survey and meet afterwards to discuss the results. See www.foccusinc.com. Training is provided. This is a great opportunity to mentor young couples and share your faith.

First Reconciliation/Communion - Come join us as a teacher or classroom assistant for our grade 2 sacramental preparation program for First Reconciliation and First Communion.  Orientation, materials, and lessons/activities are all provided. Commitment would be once a month for approximately 2 hours, plus prep time.
