 What is KOINONIA? What are these small groups about? 

 Pronounced: Koy-no-nee-ya Simply put, KOINONIA groups are Catholic youth and their friends coming together to have conversations in a warm, relaxed setting about meaningful issues in life and how faith helps make sense of it all.  Each gathering includes food, fun and faith sharing. At St. Veronica we are inviting young people from 8th grade who have been confirmed through high school to form small groups. 

The goal is to help young people respond to God's gracious activity in their lives - that means recognizing how much God has given us and wants us to draw closer to Him. - These groups, made up of 6 to 12 teens would meet for five gatherings of about two hours each over the span of 10 to 12 weeks. We are calling these Small Christian Communities "KOINONIA" a Greek word meaning Community. - 

 Each group will have 2 adult leaders called "Guides".
 - Groups can meet in a home, at a coffee shop or other public place, or in a parish room.
 - Groups will be formed based on age/grade and preferred time & day of week to meet.

Registration for Koinonia groups can be completed using one of the following processes: A paper registration form -  which can be dropped in the collection basket at church, placed in the mail or e-mailed to Bill Frantz at; or On-line registration - which can be completed on line and sent on-line. 

Groups will form each year.  We will contact you directly regarding time and place for the first meetings.
