Social Events Committee

soupNstationsOur purpose is to provide opportunities throughout the year for fun and fellowship with our parish family.  In the last three years we have seen record numbers at our:

  • Parish Picnic
  • Children’s Halloween Party
  • Christmas Party

as well as other scheduled events.

Father John is anxious to add the Sedar Meal to our Lenten/Easter tradition. This ritual meal, which commemorates the events of the Exodus is as much a part of our Christian history as it is a part of the Jewish history and traditions that remain today.

The primary aim of the Seder is to transmit to future generations the story of the Exodus, a central event in Jewish history. The Exodus story pertains to all persons, since it tells of the right of all persons to be free.

In the Christian tradition the Passover Seder is when Jesus instituted the Eucharist, on Holy Thursday. Gathered around the supper table with his disciples, Jesus told them, “I have longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

Christian observance of the ritual seder meal celebrates not only our tradition of Christ’s last supper but our own Jewish heritage which provided the context for Jesus’ institution at the last supper.
