Tag: Dinners for 8

Have you been tossing and turning, night after night, wondering when the Dinners for Eight groups will be assigned?

Of course you have! Well, rest easy. The fall got away from us and the groups didn’t get formed, but never fear, we’re ready to start things up in January. If you previously signed up, we’ll put you in a group, if you didn’t sign-up, it’s not too late to put your name on the list in Grafe Hall. This is great way to socialize with St. B’s friends in a relaxed environment, please join us.

Dinners for 8 get-togethers to resume soon

We welcome anyone who participated in the groups last spring as well as all new members or participants who have found the time for a casual meal once a month with fellow parishioners and friends. For anyone new, these dinners are meant as casual get-togethers, once a month, to get to know other members of St. B’s that you may not know or a chance to get to know people better. Assignments will be sent out soon. Questions? Contact Liz Martin or Fr. Sean in the office.

Get Ready for Dinners for Eight

Liz Martin and Sean and Melissa Wall are ready to kick-off this new social opportunity. They were pleased with the enthusiastic response of so many members and group assignments will be made soon. These will be casual monthly gatherings of 8 people to allow parish members can get to know each other better. One person within each group will take the role of the convener. This person can host the first month’s meal and make sure that all questions and loose ends are taken care of throughout the four months. Every four months the groups of 8 will be rearranged and new people can sign-up and the process will start again so you get to meet other individuals or couples from the parish. These gatherings are meant to be low key and the primary goal is social – fellowship, food and fun. You can make new friends or get to know “old” friends in a new way. If you have any questions, contact Father Sean in the office.
