Fellowship


“Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” Acts 2, 46-47

Fellowship is not an option. St. Paul reminds us in the First Letter to the Corinthians in chapter 1; verse 9 that “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord”.

Fellowship is an essential part of being a Catholic Christian. It shows love, hospitality, care, unity, companionship, joy, and the importance of being together. The strongest and most pointed Holy Scriptures passage is from the Letter of St. Paul to the Hebrews, chapter 10, where we read that some have stopped meeting and are neglecting fellowship: “let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another…”

In the spirit of our Savior expressed in Matthew’s Gospel:
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them,” we invite you to:

1. Once a month, September through April, St. Peter Damian sponsors a Fellowship Sunday. It is held after all the Sunday Masses in Fellowship Hall in the lower level of the Chapel. Come and meet your fellow parishioners. Enjoy some coffee, cake, and good company.
2. Light refreshments every Tuesday after morning Mass in the apartment of the Chapel.
3. Our vibrant ministries where you can meet other parishioners who serve the Lord in many other capacities.
4. Various events, devotions, lecture meetings which are being organized throughout the year like: Mardi Gras, Preschool Summer School, the Church Picnic and many others.
5. Our organized educational events through the Lifelong Faith Formation.

Please take a look at the first page of the web site, in the weekly bulletin or monthly e-news emailed to our parishioners for the current events and be part of our Catholic Community.
