Living Your Strengths: Journey Group Registration

We would be delighted to have you participate in Living Your Strengths!  Discover how uniquely gifted and talented you are in God's eyes.  Begin to discover your calling.  Get to know other parishioners, and learn to recognize the talents in others.  It's a wonderful gift to give yourself!  Learn more about LYS here.


WHO?  You!  Join the 900+ parishioners who have taken the assessment, 800+ who have completed journey and 400+ who have been coached.  Note:  This series is for adults.  Please visit our StrengthsQuest page for information on LYS for teens.

WHAT? Our LYS journey group sessions have 2 facilitators, 6-8 participants and each meeting lasts 90 minutes.  The groups meet once a week for 5 weeks.   When groups are full, we begin a waiting list.

No couples in the same group please!  From our experience, we find that participants share more freely in a group where they don't know the other participants, especially in the case of a spouse or significant other.   

WHEN & WHERE? Our next Journey Groups will begin in January 2018.  A morning and an evening group will meet on Wednesdays, beginning January 31.
