Social Circles

Where two or more are gathered in My name…

All Members of the Body, though Many, Are One

Fellowship at the Casa is a way to give and receive, to learn from one another, that challenges us to both accountability and growth in new directions. The groups below are people with a common interest who want to discuss ideas, confirm that their questions or feelings are normal, or just let off steam with friends! The following groups vary in focus and how often they meet but all offer one thing in common: fellowship with people like you!

AZ Males

Arizona Male Spirituality (or AZ Males) is an organization dedicated to helping men progress on their spiritual journey. As a licensed regional affiliate of the Illuman global organization, this group meets monthly to discuss spirituality, philosophy and other faith teachings — often inspired by the work of Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM. Visit for more.

Meets last Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.

Casa Single Adults

Widowed? Divorced? Never married? Single, spiritual men and women of all ages gather to share their journey with like-minded people of faith.  Meets 2nd Saturday of the month at 6:30 pm and often includes outside activities to keep the group connected. Meetings will resume in the fall after a summer hiatus.

Cornerstone at the Casa

This group meets for meditation sessions every Monday and Friday at 11:30 am in the Meditation Chapel, and on Wednesdays at 11:30 am in the Casita. Visit the Front Desk and ask for a map of the grounds. All are welcome. No charge.

Daughters of Eve

We are a group of women on a spiritual journey open to the promptings of the Spirit. We explore the evolution of our spirituality using contemporary resources, sharing, prayer, ritual, story and song. This circle of women is a safe place to express our passions and our growing pains. It is also a nurturing environment in which we discover or enhance our experience of God.

Meets regularly for six-week sessions. See Calendar of Events.

Gifted & Called

This group is for anyone who identifies themselves as gay or lesbian and who claims Christianity as their religion of choice. As children of God, you are called for a purpose in God’s design. Retreat opportunities offered at various times of the year.

See Calendar of Events.

Men in Spirit

Men in Spirit is the Casa’s men’s group. Our purpose is to help further spirituality and the responsibilities of Christian men. These goals are pursued through discussion, study, lectures and guidance.

We meet on the first Saturday of the month, with a few exceptions, for Mass at 7:00 am followed by breakfast and our meeting. We usually breakup by 9:30 am.
