House Churches

Lent 2021 
begins Wednesday, February 17th


House Churches will necessarily have a different look this year due to COVID


Perhaps House Church groups will be
> smaller
> consist of only immediate family
> meet via Zoom or
other video conference options


No matter what, you can still find a way to give some extra time to the Lord this Lent!

Sign up to join a group
or start a group with your friends!


House Churches have been a Lenten tradition at St. Emily Parish since their inception in 1999. They further develop each individual’s connection to God through participation in small faith-sharing groups. The program’s purpose is to provide a warm and inviting environment for any who may wish to discuss and share their faith.

Different materials are selected each year to use as a guide along the way.  No pressure, just a great way to share and reflect on the current readings for the Church cycle,  a specific Gospel, or pertinent issues of the day.  Some have found their House Church experience to be so life altering that they choose to meet throughout the year, not just during Lent. Consider joining a House Church for Lent 2021 or even starting a new one.

Are you interested in starting a House Church for faith sharing to meet at a time outside of Lent? Not sure how to get it started? Email Sister Danielle Jacob or call (847-824-5049, ext 206) for information.
