Dinner for Eight

Love your neighbor as yourself! Is that not what we all are supposed to be doing on this earthly journey? One of the paths you could take on that journey is joining “Dinner for Eight.” It is a fun ministry where our parish family can get to know and appreciate one another.

As a group Dinner for Eight is also involved in stewardship activities for the parish. This has included serving at the Parish Picnics, Lenten Suppers and competing in the Chili Cook Off. Help make our BIG parish seem a little smaller.

This is an invitation for adults of all ages, couples and singles, to get involved and share their time and talents to have some fun. Groups of eight gather four times a year in a different home or another place.

Host/hostess prepare the entrĂ©e and drinks, others bring a dish to compliment the meal. If it is your turn and you prefer not to cook or clean the house, not a problem…meet for brunch after Sunday Mass and all go “Dutch Treat.” There are other options for meeting ideas and the meals are not gourmet, unless you want them to be. All groups gather twice a year in community for a “Kick off Party” which occurs the 4th Saturday in January and a “Pitch in Party” held after the 11:30 Mass on the 1st Sunday of August.

Don’t pass up this chance to become a more involved parish neighbor. Share a little of yourself, reach out, it’s fun and painless. Thank you to all who have participated in this ministry by opening your hearts and homes. You are the ones who have made this ministry a success!
