Check Out our Small Group Ministry Video - sign up today!





Weíre not meant to do life alone. God created us to be in community with Him and with each other. And while attending our Sunday Mass is a great way to experience God; we need more as we seek to fill the need we have to grow deeper together - thatís where Small Groups come in.

  Donít Get Lost in the Crowd .....

... Get Involved ...Get Connected!

Our goal is Growing Disciples who are Growing Other Disciples  


  • "I feel like I am lost in the crowd sometimes."

  • "I donít really know anyone at St Mary's."

  • "I am growing in my relationship with the Lord on my own but it would be fun to talk with others who share similar experiences."

  • "I want to move to the next level in my relationships with God and with others."

  • "I want to belong."

Have you felt like this?

Small groups are part of the life-changing experience at St Mary of the Visitation where you journey with others who are learning to apply their faith to everyday life. Wherever you are on your faith journey - Small groups give you a place where you can know and be known, love and be loved, serve and be served.
