Do you want some good food, friends, and fellowship?
Then this is the group for you!
Dinner for Eight groups St. Mary’s parishioners together for a planned meal and fellowship in their homes in order to get to know one another better. Once groups are formed, the first host will be selected from the group roster. He/she will contact members to arrange the details for the first gathering. Dinner groups are encouraged to be creative; consider picking a dinner “theme night” (i.e. Italian, dessert or soup night), and everyone can bring a dish that goes along with that theme.
The Dinner for Eight Groups are expected to begin meeting on a mutually agreed upon date in October 2018.
Questions & Answers
==What is Dinner for Eight?==
Dinner for Eight is a great way to meet folks from church that you may not already know. It’s also a good way to get to know your church family better. Groups plan their own meals and get together once a month for four consecutive months. You share meals at participants’ homes or wherever the group decides. The emphasis is on fun and fellowship, so you don’t have to be a gourmet cook to participate.
==How does a Dinner for Eight Group work?==
St. Mary’s opens registration in late summer for people in a variety of households (single, married, with/without children) to sign up to join a dinner group. (Registration is now closed.) Once groups are formed, a Group Coordinator is selected for each group. The Group Coordinator will contact members to arrange the details for the first gathering. Dinner groups are encouraged to be creative in the meals they enjoy together.
