    Dinner Church is a monthly offering where diocesan youth can come together to enjoy a meal, celebrate the Eucharist, and engage in a youth only conversation about tough topics in a safe and loving environment. This moveable feast will be hosted by a different parish in the diocese each month so that youth can get a glimpse into each other's lives, understand our similarities and differences, and share our love of God with each other.

    Noonday Prayer & Lunch

    On the third Tuesday of each month, we will gather for a short service of noonday prayer after which everyone is invited to have lunch together. The prayer service is a wonderful way to spend your lunch worshipping the Lord. Since the luncheon is an informal gathering, we ask that everyone bring his or her own lunch. We will provide water, tea and coffee to drink
