Dining in the Kingdom of God gatherings are open to all wishing to nurture a deeper understanding of the Kingdom of God and a more profound love for Jesus in the mystery of his love, the Eucharist.

We begin with Fr. George providing a teaching, continuing with small group sharing, followed by two team members sharing a short story of their own personal faith journey, and end with the celebration of Eucharist in the chapel.

Each of our gatherings will be from 7 pm to 8:30 pm, everything is provided free of charge, there is no homework and no long-term commitment required.

Come to one session or as many as you wish.  Prior attendance is not necessary. Please join us for a time of prayer, reflection, fellowship and Eucharistic celebration as together we delve more deeply into the Eucharistic meals found in the Gospel of Luke.  Meals permeate the entire fabric of Christian life.  Little wonder Luke saw the Last Supper as announcing the Kingdom of God.  Little wonder he saw every other meal with Jesus as part of the origins of the Eucharist and as revealing its implications for the life of the Church. 

Hope you can join us – all are welcome!!
