Foyer Groups
Foyer Groups are being formed and will be starting up soon. For newcomers, or anyone not familiar with Foyer Groups - it is like a supper club.  The groups will meet every other month (six times a year) in a different member's home, or a restaurant, or even the parish hall.  This is a great way for newcomers to meet fellow parishioners, and for all to meet those who attend services at other times.  It is open to singles and couples, young and old (adults only).  Sign-up sheets are in the Parish Hall. For more information contact Tammy Borders.
