Coffee Hours are held after the 8 and 10 am liturgies every Sunday. These occasions provide an important contribution to parish life by encouraging friendly gatherings, and providing the many attendees ideal time to get to know each other and to welcome newcomers. People willing to assist with setting up and providing refreshments are welcome.
Once a month, or so, euchre fans get together in the Parish House on a Saturday night for a friendly evening of cards, conversation and snacks. New players are welcome. If you're a novice, people would be glad to teach you.
Men's Breakfast Club
The men of the parish meet once a month (excepting summer) on Saturday for a deliciously prepared breakfast (by the men, of course!) and a guest speaker. In warmer weather, the men gather on the terrace. The men also cater special breakfasts such as a couples' breakfast near Valentine's Day and a women's breakfast near Mother's Day. All men of the parish are automatically members of the club and are always welcome to attend. Guests are welcome too.
Newcomers' Wine & Cheese
From time to time, we invite all newcomers to a special Wine & Cheese gathering at the Parish House. This is an excellent opportunity for newcomers to meet one another and a chance to meet some of the parish leadership in an informal and enjoyable manner.
The parish puts on a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday. This day is also known as Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) and is the day before Lent starts. Lent is a time when Christians are invited to practice their spiritual disciplines, including fasting. So Fat Tuesday is a good way to get rid of things we won't need during the season of Lent! The festivity and fellowship of a meal based on pancakes and sausages then gives way to the austerity of Lent. Everyone is welcome.
January 25th is the feast day of our patron saint, the apostle St. Paul. We celebrate the occasion on the Sunday closest to the 25th. Immediately after our worship service at 10 o'clock we gather for a delicious potluck meal and a time of fellowship. This day provides a great introduction to life in this parish and all are invited to the feast.
