Food, Fellowship, and Fun!
The Saint Oliver Plunkett Dinner Club is about groups of friends who share a passion for food - both cooking and eating it. What better way to meet your fellow parishioners than to share dining experiences at one another’s homes!
The concept of the Dinner Club is to have three to four couples in each group. There will be three or four dinners, one at each of the couples’ homes. For each dinner, the host couple will prepare the main course, and the other couples bring hors d'oeuvres, salad, wine, and dessert. The duties rotate over the course of three or four dinners, so that all of the couples will have a chance to contribute with all elements of the meals. It is completely up to each group to decide on the rotation scheme, and when the dinners will be held within their own groups.
Whether we discuss reading a current novel, the latest new movie, a family celebration, or the latest parish events, the dinner club provides a unique place to develop friendships within our church life.
While some dinner nights can be adventurous as we experiment with new cuisines or gourmet ingredients, others may consist of the recipes you would find at a typical church potluck supper. The involved couples come from a mixture of lifestyles, such as couples new to the parish and wanting to feel at home , empty nesters that are now free for more social functions and younger couples that look forward to an evening of adult conversation and a break from parenting.
The group will reorganize for fall at a Potluck Dinner on Sunday February 19th at 6:00 PM in the Parish Family Center. Contact ministry heads for more information: Tom and Cathy Hedges 770-985-6675 or email
