|Social Events & Hospitality
Welcoming, Community & Fellowship are at the heart of our Benedictine tradition and thus, at the heart of our parish. Our Social Events & Hospitality Ministry hopes to spread and strenghten that spirit of welcome and fellowship throughout our parish family, and to extend it further to those whose lives we touch (or touch us!) through the works of ministries, events and special celebrations.
From a Hospitality stand point, our ministry creates a "welcoming" environment for parish family members, visitors and friends to gather for light refreshments as they take the opportunity to share faith and fellowship following specific events, such as our Sunday Masses, parish retreats, workshops, seminars, etc. Our ministry also plans and coordinates throughout the year several Social Events that are fun, exciting and entertaining to parish family members of all ages!
Following are some of the events we have hosted recently or events we are planning to host in the near future:
- Parish Appreciation Breakfast, Saturday, January 19, 2013, anytime from 9am - 11am in our Parish Hall
- Family Pasta Dinner, Saturday, February 23, 2013, 6pm in our Parish Hall
- Easter Egg Hunt, Saturday, March 23, 2013, 10am - 11:30am
- ...and many more events to come!
We would love to have you as part of this joy-filled ministry! All ideas are welcome, so please come and unleash your creativity!
