Small Christian Communities

Small Christian Communities are a growing phenomena in the global South, particularly in Africa, where the Catholic population is growing. SCCs gather together ordinary Catholics to read and reflect on scripture, faith, and their communities' needs. In Latin America they arose soon after Vatican Council II and became known as "base communities." In the US as well there are expressions of communities at college campuses, parishes, and organizations around the country.
