As you all know, we have recently changed how we operate the meal after the Divine Liturgy on Sundays. The current schedule is as followed:
First Sunday of the Month is a Parish Potluck in which everyone is encouraged to bring something to share
Second Sunday of the Month is a Parish Family provided meal in which a family or multiple can join together to provide something for the parish as a whole
Third Sunday of the Month is a meal provided by the Parish Council
Fourth Sunday of the Month is a meal provided by one of the parish ministries (Philoptochos, Young Adult Group, Catechumens, Men's Group, Teens, etc)
Fifth Sunday of the Month (when it occurs) is a grab-bag that can be sponsored or provided by anyone interested in doing so
In order to make sure everyone is on the same page and to plan ahead, we would like to start sign-ups for each of the Sundays, including both who will provide the meal and who will clean up afterwards on Sundays.
The meals do not need to be ornate or expensive. This is about a small brunch to come together in fellowship. Ideas include such things as: A soup, some sort of meat, salad, bread, cookies or cake, etc. The idea being something sweet and something savory.
Likewise, at any time, feel free to bring canned drinks or bottles of water to fill the fridge in the Hall.
We encourage multiple families to get together to ease the burden on any singular family. Likewise, someone may sponsor a family to cook, who may not have the funds to do so. If you would like to donate to the coffee hour fund, please make a memo on a check concerning so.
Please reach out to a Parish Councilmember or email StsCaH@gmail.com to sign-up for one of the Sundays listed below:
August 14th (Fast friendly)
December 12th (Fast Friendly)
Likewise, if you would like to help clean up on Sundays (including those not listed) please reach out so we can put together a crew.
We hope this ministry will continue to inspire fellowships and working together among families of the parish.
