A Place at the Table Ministries – Upcoming Dates

This fall at St. Gianna’s Parish, a number of new ministry areas will be offered to help meet the members of our parish community in their various situations. These ministry groups will include ministry for: Single Catholics, Separated and Divorced, LGBTQ2, and Young Mothers. Our first two ministry groups are now ready to begin:

Ministry for Catholic Singles
This ministry group will provide an opportunity for our single members to come together to share and understand the blessings and challenges of being an unmarried person in the world and church today. Though this group will include a social dimension, its primary focus will be the network and unique support that only singles can ultimately give to one another. The first gathering will take place on Thursday, October 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Narthex.

New Beginnings Ministry
This ministry group provides an opportunity for those who have lived through or are living through a separation or divorce. This group is a place were solace, hope, encouragement and the gifts of our faith are better discovered and appreciated. The next meeting of the Ministry to Separated & Divorced will meet on Wednesday, November 15th at 7:30 p.m.

Ministry for our LGBTQ2 Members
This ministry is designed to provide an opportunity for our LGBTQ2 brothers and sisters to come together to find support, encouragement, and the gifts of faith and community. This ministry will provide a safe and welcoming place of belonging. The first gathering will be offered on Wednesday, November 22nd at 7:30 p.m.

Ministry for Young Mothers - Gathering date: To be determined
This ministry group will provide a place for young mothers and their babies to come together to find encouragement and support in their new role as moms.

In preparation for a fall start-up, these new ministry areas are in need of individuals who are willing to be a part of one of the start-up leadership teams. If one of these ministry areas speaks to your need and you are willing to be a part of the formation of a particular area, please see Fr. Darrin in-person or contact him via email.
