News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool


Family Groups are drawn from the parish community.  Like a natural family, Family Groups are made up of people of all ages and circumstances: young, mature, married, single, separated, widowed and divorced, who simply commit to meeting up once a month, to get to know each other better.  


Although Family Groups grow out of a parish community and are linked by a common faith, many group members bring along partners and friends who may not be so involved in Church.  These people are integral to the success of a group. Family Groups have few rules beyond a commitment to know, support and love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.  They need enthusiastic leaders and the support of the parish priest to thrive, but activities are kept at minimum cost.  Family Groups offer a great deal to parishes.


Have you ever heard someone say, ‘I wish I knew more people in our church’?  Perhaps it’s something you’ve said or thought yourself?  A Family Group is just tailor-made for you.  With simple monthly functions and lots of friendly faces, you’ll never have to say that again.


If your parish is interested in setting up a Family Group contact Sue Faulkner: Tel: 0151 522 1047  Email: s.faulkner@rcaol.co.uk
