St. Norbert Parish is offering a Small Group this fall. If you have never tried it, take this invite as a gentle push. What do you have to lose? People need community to grow closer to God. The small group is a faith community–meeting virtually and, in some cases, in person. The small group simply listens to the upcoming Gospel and discusses what it means to you in your life.  God is calling you to know Him deeply. Small Groups can be a simple answer.  Please consider joining for one hour weekly for 4 weeks. Click HERE to register.
