SJB Connect: Building Community through Common Interests

How well do you know the people sitting next to you in the pew on Sunday? What interests do they have?  SJB Connect is an attempt at helping build community through what you are already passionate about or a new activity you might want to try.  Groups will be lead by those in each group.  The group will dictate the kinds of activities you do and how often you will meet.  You can find a space here at the parish or meet offsite.  Each group will begin when there is someone in place to administrate the communication and lead the group.  Click here to fill out a survey, or stop by the Harvest Table to pick one up.
