Social Life at St Bernadettes

Social Life at St Bernadettes

All too often, we smile or acknowledge someone across the Church at weekends but we don’t know their name or anything about them. We can describe where they sit for mass, how many family members there might be and what they were wearing; We might even make a sign of peace  then when we see them in Tesco we look straight past them or just say a nervous Hello.

A few years ago we decided to try and address this by having a few more social events so that we have time to get to know one another and have fun along the way. We have had several very successful events such as Ceilidhs ( a kind of Barn dance), quiz nights, italian evenings, Malaysian evenings, barbecues and dinner dances. Some events are held in the Church hall, others at outside venues.

Everyone is always welcome to come and join in the fun, make new friends and really feel part of the parish. We are always open to suggestions for events and both for throwing ideas in and organising something. We are all looking forward to Uncle Gordon’s excellent quiz night on 5th December- do come along for a Mr Crispy supper to feed your brain while you work out the answers!
