One of the main components of this ministry are the weekly cell group meetings: small groups of up to 16 members. Our society grows as each cell group invites and welcomes new members, then divides once the group begins to overflow—similar to our human cells. In this way, the interconnected cells can live the New Evangelization as Pope Benedict XVI defined it: “New evangelization must surrender to the mystery of the grain of mustard seed and not be so pretentious as to believe to immediately produce a large tree.”
Below you will find a list of available cell groups. Some of them are currently under construction. If you don’t see a group that works for you here message Sue and she will let you know of other options.
The Leader - Whitney
Hi! I’m Whitney. I absolutely love meeting new people and creating a welcoming community in which to grow closer to Christ. By day, I’m a Youth Ministry Coordinator for middle and high school students and by night I am a cat & dog mom who loves bringing people together. Our Thaddeus group is welcoming, hilarious, and deeply committed to authenticity, vulnerability, and finding joy. If you’re looking for friends who are encouraging and perfectly imperfect, you’ve found your group.
The Leader - Jen
Jenn is a convert who had some interesting run-ins with a few Saints who helped her decide to come into the Church. She works in the nonprofit sector as a pseudo private investigator, and enjoys pursuing her entrepreneurial whims. If she’s not knitting, sewing, or spending time with her dog and cat, she’s probably reading or listening to a podcast because #introvert. You’ll find her at Luton St. on Monday nights, probably with coffee or tea in her hands.
Work in Progress (no seriously, that’s the name)
The Leader - Marie
Hi!! My name is Marie Cirenza. I like to read, write, and travel. I am getting a Master’s in Theology from Franciscan University of Stuebenville. I have a cat. Her name is Fuzzles. And she is adorable.
The Leader - Bailey
Hey there Bailey Brown here, but I normally go by Bay Brown. I just recently graduated from Aquinas. If you love sports and the Catholic faith, then we will get along just fine. All I know is that I have no idea where I am going but I am always striving to know and see our Lord Jesus Christ in everything.
The Leader - Brittany
Brittany has been married for 3.5 years. She is still learning how to not burn all the food. He is still learning how to make the bed. The verdict is out on how to fold towels correctly. Mostly of their energy is spent keeping two tiny humans alive. Basically life couldn’t be better.
