Jesus loved a good dinner party! Special things can happen when faithful families gather around tables. It is in this spirit that your parish invites you to gather with one another to break bread through Doers Dining.
The reviews are in, and the first round of Doers Dining was a smash hit!
“It was a total delight” — newcomer to St. James’s
“We were all together around the table for dinner and had a lively and good discussion. … It was a wonderful experience, and we are grateful for the opportunity.” — Doers Dining host
Doers Dining is a vibrant new initiative that is creating many intimate “feasts” to continue the fellowship found in one large Feast we have had in the past. As we do on Sunday when we break bread together, we invite everyone to come to the table. Sign up below by September 23 .
More than 320 parishioners signed up to break bread together over the summer, as hosts opened their homes to their fellow Doers for dinner, hospitality and shared conversation. Some met for adults-only gatherings, while others joined family groups or dined at Westminster Canterbury.
The concept is simple: All who are interested should sign up online with their preferences — host or participant, with children or adults only, in the community or at Westminster Canterbury. Then groups of 8-12 people will be formed, and hosts will open their homes, coordinate a suitable date and provide the main course. Guests will bring appetizers, salad, sides, dessert, etc. The conversation — and fun — flow from there.
Groups will be assigned provided we have sufficient hosts.
