New Leaven Discipleship Program
New Leaven is an apostolate that provides maturing disciples a method and process to transform their lives. It tackles practical issues about the way we make and spend MONEY, the way we spend our TIME, our acceptance of God's design for the FAMILY, the nature and quality of our RELATIONSHIPS, our reverence for the sexuality and fertility of the BODY, our engagement in the MISSION of Jesus, the way we WORK and its impact on the family. In all these things, New Leaven combines the truth and wisdom of Catholic teaching with the unscripted dynamic of small groups for humbly approaching the Lord and seeking those redeemed patterns of living that only the Spirit can bring. In New Leaven, the small group serves as a kind of "body ministry" whereby the group, as well as one's personal self, is transformed. Parishes can use this resource as a next step for those who may have gone through Alpha or Christlife and are looking to deepen their faith and live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
