I fondly remember family dinners as a kid … my dad worked 7pm to 7am, so we would sit down at the table those nights at 5:30 to a home-cooked meal before he headed off to work the graveyard shift. Great memories of family time, not so great memories of being forced to load the dishwasher!
Not everyone love puns, and I’m not always very good at them – but they always put a smile on my face (even if it’s a reluctant one)! So when I heard about an event involving a pope and some eggs, I had to learn more! I wonder what came first – the pope or the egg!
As a parish family, we need activities and events that help to build community. Some families are related but never talk to one another … that’s not the family we’re trying to build as a parish. If people are going to talk to one another, we need events that get people talking! What’s better than coffee? (Maybe coffee AND donuts!)
If we want to incorporate new people into the community, then we need to think outside the box. If we always do what we’ve always done we’ll always get the same results we’ve always had. Think outside the box!
