Come to the Table Ministry

Come to the Table

Come to the Table is a chance to get to know one another better by sharing a meal. It is a way for the adult members of our church to meet other people in the church in an informal home setting.

How it works:

For each round of Come to the Table, groups are formed combining couples and singles for a meal at a host’s home. Group sizes are usually eight but can be 6 or 10 depending on what the hosts can accommodate. This size ensures that the group is large enough to meet new people and small enough for all to be involved in conversation.

Hosts will contact the people assigned to their group to arrange a date that works for all starting in April. Get togethers will be scheduled every other month.

Once a date is established, participants agree on what they will bring to the dinner. These dinners are not intended to be gourmet events, they are gatherings to get to know one another better so any level of culinary expertise is welcome!

How to get involved:

Getting involved is as easy as providing some simple information on the form below including whether you are willing to host. You can join as a single, a couple or a couple of friends who enjoy spending time together. Non-Catholic spouses or friends are absolutely a welcome part of these dinners.

Please join us for our fun gatherings by submitting the form below.
