“Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread from house to house and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” Acts 2:46-47
Foyer Groups (from the French word “foier” meaning “hearth” or “home”) are small groups of roughly 8-10 parishioners who meet 5-7 times a year for meals and conversation (group decides). It’s a wonderful way to meet new people, explore new and old interests together, and gain a new sense of belonging. There is no formal agenda or assignment.
Each group decides when and where they would like to meet. Some ideas would be a potluck at home or a meal at a restaurant. We even have a group for foodies who like to dine in D.C. Newcomers are invited to join at any time. Click here to sign-up.
Escape from the cold and enjoy a night of fun and meaningful connection with board games, cards, food, music, and ping-pong.
Everyone is invited to dress up with festive beads and masks for a delicious supper of pancakes and celebratory indulgence. The term Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday,”, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting and religious obligations of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. The term “shrove” comes from the word “shrive,” which means to absolve.
