Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Let’s face it, most of us go to the same Mass every weekend and sit in the same pew surrounded by the same parishioners and yet, other than extending a welcome and the Sign of Peace, we do not know their name or anything about them. Well this program can change that! The Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Program gathers a randomly-selected group of 6 to 10 people at another parishioner’s home for dinner on the second Saturday of each month. The only information they are given is the address, phone number and what to bring i.e. appetizer, salad, vegetable or dessert. The host for the evening would be responsible for the main course and beverages (wine, soda and coffee). They too do not know who will be at their home, only the number of guests and what they will bring. We try to ensure that everyone gets to meet new people at each dinner and build a friendship in faith and community. For more information and to register, click here, or contact Sue Crance at scrance@sc.rr.com or (843) 557-4401.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

This ministry offers tangible evidence to those for whom we are praying. Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. Some recipients have continued the kindness by making a shawl and passing it onto someone in need. Thus, the blessing ripples from person-to-person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, mothering God! Contact Deb Mathey 843-879-2244 or spitfiremathey@gmail.com
