We often think of the time we worship Sunday by Sunday as a sacred meal—and it is. We have also discovered that breaking bread together before meetings and parish events is also an opportunity to gather for another kind of sacred meal – one where we gather as community, to come to know one another better, to be nourished both in body and in spirit.
A dedicated team of parishioners and friends prepare a nutritious dinner to feed us on these occasions. It is an important part of how we gather and welcome in as a community. If you love to cook, serve food or wash dishes, we invite you to join our team.
The Hospitality group gathers in teams on an as needed basis to provide meals for parish events. We are not a catering service but rather a group dedicated to providing table fellowship. Meals carefully prepared, welcome generously extended, hospitality abundantly shared to all who gather together.
As the number of events that we prepare meals for expands, so too does the need to welcome in more cooks, servers and clean-up crew. We provide you with the training you need. There is a lead-cook assigned to each meal and depending on your availability your gifts of time and talent will be welcomed by one of our teams.
It is rewarding time spent together. One of our team says: when the Hospitality Group was looking for volunteers to begin the experiment of dinner... I was a willing recruit. I quickly began to meet and get to know a whole new group of people from the parish…
