All are invited to join a Sheil small group to explore a particular area of Catholic faith and meet other members of the community.  Ranging from bible studies to histories, each quarter there are new topics.

Winter Quarter Opportunities

7 Sundays, starting January 22, 2023 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. at Sheil Catholic Center, Evanston in the Lower Level

Join us for Witness this winter quarter. In this small group for students, you will experience Jesus' love through student testimonies shared every week, and learn the art of crafting a witness talk yourself. Witness is designed to be interactive and works to illuminate hearts and minds through stories of grace. This is a drop-in group so no advance registration is necessary. Questions? Contact Megan Schultz here.

Facilitator:  This small group is facilitated by student leaders and coordinated by Megan Schultz, Sheil's Campus Ministry Intern

Faith and Spaces
7 Thursdays, starting January 12, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at Sheil Catholic Center, Evanston in the Christ the Teacher Classroom

This small group for students and associates will explore the connection between faith and spaces.  It will encourage participants to deepen their own faith through encounter with holy spaces both universal (such as the Holy Land) and personal.

Facilitator: This small group is facilitated by Dr. Roberto Mazza who specializes in the modern history of the Middle East and hosts the podcast Jerusalem Unplugged.
