Small Faith Sharing Groups
We all believe in angels. But what do we really know about them? The Bible is full of passages about angels. Angels are sent to accomplish God’s will, to speak for God, to direct the course of nations, and to protect God’s people. They worship God and deliver God’s judgment. But what do they have to do with us and our spiritual lives today?
Beginning the week of September 20, the Spiritual Formation Commission of St Clare and St Paschal Baylon will be offering the program Angels in the Bible, written by Fr. George Smiga, from our own Cleveland Diocese. Through video lectures, Scripture and faith sharing, this six-week program will help us come to know the truth about angels. And because angels are mediators of God’s presence and action, studying angels is studying God.
Each participant will receive a book which contains faith sharing materials, consisting of commentary and study and reflection questions. You are asked to contribute $15.00, which covers the cost of the book; funds are available to offset the cost, if needed. Groups will meet once a week at different times during the day and in the evening, both at St. Clare and St. Paschal. If you have any questions, please call either Barb Curran at 440-840-5511 or Rosalie Lewis 440-227-8718.
Please register by August 30 so we can order the books.

St. Clare - St. Paschal Spiritual Formation Committee
Saint Paschal Baylon

The committee's mission is to build and raise awareness of opportunities for adult education and spiritual enrichment. Members work to plan, publicize, enhance, create, and assist with a variety of programs for adults, promoting existing spiritual events as well as developing new opportunities at St. Clare and our cluster partner St. Paschal Baylon. Our vision is to stimulate spiritual growth and fellowship within our parishes and evangelization to the Hillcrest community. Past educational programs have consisted of scriptural and liturgical studies, parish missions, special speakers and talks. Scheduled events allow for reflection and prayer encouraging personal growth and knowledge of God. The combined St. Clare and St. Paschal group meets semi-monthly, usually on the first Monday evening of each month, alternating between the two church locations.
