Small Group Study Program Plan and Materials

We are asking each parish in our diocese to participate in this Small Group Study Program either in the fall of 2023 or the spring of 2024.

Small groups are a powerful way to see the fruit of the Revival at your parish! A study called Jesus and the Eucharist has been created specifically for the Year of Parish Revival and is provided to parishes free of charge, along with the training and support you need to be successful. This 7-session video series will be available on this page in time for you to lead this study at your parish in the fall or spring.

This series is being provided to parishes free of charge, along with the training and support you need to be successful in implementing this important initiative. Scroll down to access the videos, recorded trainings, and helpful templates.

Small Group Training Resources

Below you’ll find training webinars and documents to help you lead the Jesus and the Eucharist small group initiative in your parish. There are three types of trainings available, and we ask that Parish Point Persons and their Core Teams attend all three. Along with trainings, simple resources are available to help you invite your parishioners to this study and prepare for each session. Table Facilitators, who will be vital to the success of this initiative in your parish, will have one specific training they need to attend.

It is recommended that the planning training be completed a few months before you start this study, followed by the Table Facilitator and Implementation Training closer to when you will begin, in order to ensure that you are prepared for a successful study. For example, if you are planning to launch this study in the new year, you can view the planning training now and begin your preparations for a successful small-group study.


While this training is primarily for Parish Point Persons, if you have a Core Team, the members of that team should view this training with you and assist in implementing the next steps.

These videoes below present a step-by-step planning process, and some of these steps reference downloadable resources. Those rescourses are listed below these videos.
