RSVP is a program that invites us to reflect on the scriptures, share our faith in a comfortable setting, and pray in small groups with fellow parishioners. We gather in homes for six weekly sessions in the Fall and in Lent and many groups meet year-round. We read and reflect on the scriptures for the upcoming Sunday’s Mass and share our response to the readings and to helpful reflection questions. We then offer our prayers and petitions as a group. RSVP is a wonderful way to share our faith and build closer relationships with our fellow parishioners.
