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.

Sister to Sister

Open to all women of our parish no matter what age or season in life. We are never too young or too old to grow in our faith and relationship with God. As baptized Catholics we are sisters in God’s family. We also share the same spiritual Mother, The Blessed Virgin Mary. Our goal is to provide the opportunity to share uplifting content, nourishment for our souls, favorite scriptures, and opportunities to learn more about one another as sisters in Christ. To learn more, visit our website here or contact us at

Vine of Joy

An avenue of communication and inspiration for women who are in the “younger season” of their lives. Defining “Younger” is a bit of a challenge. Women of all ages share many things in common. However, this group is designed for women from ages twenty-something to mid-forty-something, single, married, divorced, with or without children. A vine is a symbol of life, of growth, connectedness, service, and in a spiritual way, dependency, dependency on our Lord. “Vine of Joy” describes women who are striving to grow in their faith, sharing their faith through connecting with other women, serving one another through friendship, and accomplishing this through the spiritual gift of Joy.
