Foyer Groups for January-June ~ Sign up by January 28
Foyer groups are adult social gatherings that allow parishioners to strengthen our “love for one another,” so that friendships can grow. Gatherings center around food, fun and fellowship and take place in one’s home for a meal, a picnic, an outing, etc. These are wonderful opportunities to socialize outside of church with those you know or people you do not YET know. New groups are forming now to plan events from January through June. Please sign-up by Sunday, January 28. To sign-up and for details contact Judy Bonanno.
For opportunities at Paul’s Place take a look at the volunteer calendar.
