July-December 2023 Dinner Groups

Join this fun, parish social activity that enables adult members to come together for a meal and get to know each other better. 

How it works: We create groups of up to eight people. Dinner groups generally meet in each other's homes, hopefully once in each home during the six-month period. However, the format is flexible and can be adapted to the desires of each individual group. A group can decide to meet at a restaurant or to meet for brunch instead of dinner. 

·      New parishioners are encouraged to join this social activity to meet fellow St. Peter members 

·      If you are continuing in the dinner groups, please sign up for this next cycle so you will be included in the group! 

The goal is to enjoy each others company in a social setting.  After signing up, you will be contacted by a group leader.

Food Security/Insecurity in Mecklenburg County 

Wednesday, June 14 at 6:00 pm | Zoom call 

The Zoom link will be emailed to you two days before the event.

  • Mamie Harris will discuss the County Food Security Program and share insights on food security policies and how we can make a difference. 
  • Presentation by Mamie Harris, Food Security Program Manager of the Office of Chronic Disease Policy & Prevention Mecklenburg County Public Health Department 

The Social Justice Ministry Food Security Priority Group researches the issue of food security in our community and provides opportunities for education, advocacy and action. The Food Security Priority Group works to provide a broad view of Food Security from the standpoint of its availability, access, nutrition, sustainability, stability and agency and its correlation with poverty and the environment. 

Food Security fits into the Universal Apostolic Preferences, particularly the focus on how food security is related to poverty and the excluded, and also by showing the connections between food and the environment and how this is affecting our Common Home.
