Samuel Group

Samuel Group is a community in which you can learn how to make decisions according to God’s will. It is a seven-month program adapted from the original design of Cardinal Martini of Milan, Italy. He took the inspiration of this group from the story of Samuel found in the Bible (1 Samuel 3). The experience of this young man remains for us the icon for our own spiritual journey.

OPEN TO: Young Adults between 20-35 years old Open to God and His prompting Committed to a regular spiritual life. Meet monthly with a spiritual director.

Cost for the program is: $45 (Scholarships Available)
