Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?

October 20, 2023

Ever wonder who the nice couple is who sits in front of you at Mass or the name of that friendly person who smiles so warmly to you at the sign of peace?

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a new ministry at St. Augustine and St. Edward designed to ­promote and strengthen our parish ­community by providing a chance to meet those ­familiar faces we see each week while having fun at the same time!

WHAT: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a fun way for parishioners to meet, in groups of 6-8 people, in a relaxed, informal atmosphere over dinner and conversation. There is an element of surprise to the evening – as guest, you won’t know whose home you are going to until ­dinnertime; and as host, you won’t know who’s ­coming – adds more fun for everyone! (It is not necessary to host to participate.)

WHEN: The next dinner will be held on October 28, from 6:00-8:00 pm. Watch the bulletin for registration information for each upcoming dinner.

WHERE: At the home of a volunteering host.

WHY: It is a great way to meet some of those nice people you see at Mass.

WHO: All couples and singles of the parish (21+) are invited to participate. (consider this a date night- no children)

HOW: Both hosts and guests will be contacted by email or phone one week before the event with pertinent information, while protecting the element of surprise. The host will provide the main course and beverages for the meal. Those who will be Guests will be asked to bring an appetizer, salad, rolls, vegetable dish, or dessert. On the dinner evening, you will come to St. Augustine gathering space at 5:30pm and receive an envelope with the address of the host home. Hosts and guests will be matched differently each time so we can all meet more of our fellow parishioners!
