Thank you for your interest in our Saint John Paul II Parish fellowship group! We are excited to have you join us at one of our fellowship activities.
As an introduction, we would like to give you some additional information about this group. This fellowship ministry for adults in our parish was started as a way for parishioners to make connections with one another and build community through these relationships. Vita Con Amici means “Life with Friends” in Italian and all are welcome to participate in fellowships as they are able. It is our hope that our life in Christ around the altar will be enriched by the friendship of others around the table of fellowship and hospitality. All adult parishioners are welcome to join us, so please feel free to reach out to others as well. We are finding personal invitations are the most effective way to let others know about this ministry.
We use email as our primary source of communication about planned events. We usually send out an initial email with information about the next event and then follow up with a couple of reminder emails, so you’ll hear from us a few times a month. We normally meet at a local venue (like a restaurant) in a separate space and those who attend buy their own food and beverages, but as we grow and evolve, we will expand our activities. We usually ask for RSVPs in the form of an email reply so we can let the venue know how many to expect. It also gives us a way to make sure we look for and welcome each person who attends. The RSVPs are in no way intended to discourage people from attending if they didn’t get back to us. They are merely an aid to help us plan.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our contact list and receive emails about upcoming events.
We look forward to seeing you!
Sue and Kelly
