“Alive in Christ” Singles Group

singles alive in christSingles Alive in Christ is a ministry that offers spiritual, social and service oriented activities within a Christian environment of love and support through which unmarried adults grow in their knowledge of and devotion to God. The group provides encouragement to discover God’s plan for their lives, sharing a sense of oneness with their brothers and sisters in Christ.

Any unmarried adult, whether he or she has always been single, is divorce or is widowed is encouraged to participate with the group.

Members participate in a variety of activities including Bible study, attending Mass and dining together, canoeing, hiking, service work and fund-raising for the parish and local charities.

Singles Alive in Christ generally holds one organized, singles-only activity per month and encourages singles to attend other parish-wide activities together.
