Dinner for Eight

Dinner for Eight offers the opportunity for parish members to meet and socialize with other parishioners through a monthly potluck dinner at a host’s home. Each group consists of eight or more adults, couples and/or singles, and meet on the third Saturday evening of the month from September through March (no December).

Participants are assigned randomly each month so members have the opportunity to meet many different people during the year. Each spring, all participants are invited to the culminating Dinner for Eighty held in the Parish Hall. For more information or to sign up, email [email protected]


Holy Family Book Club

The Holy Family Book Club reads one book per month and meets to discuss the book, themes, ideas and anything else that comes to mind. The books to read for the upcoming months are discussed as a group at meetings; all genres are welcome. Holy Family Book Club typically meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. If interested or if you have any questions, please contact Vicky Hadel at [email protected] View the calendar of events to see the next meeting and book chosen.
