Mission or goal
Belonging, formation in faith, prayer, service:  these are the fundamental touchstones of the authentic, fully-fledged small church community.

Throughout the week and year small church communities gather at Santa Sophia (and in homes) to study the Bible, discuss topics from a Catholic perspective and build friendships that last a lifetime.  Group sizes average 8 to 12 people.  Small church communities are an excellent way to explore and deepen your faith in a warm and welcoming environment.
