Oikos Event

It is my pleasure to invite you to Oikos Evening:  an evening that focuses on one thing – building marriages and empowering couples.  Couples/Families from all parishes are welcome!

The evening will include a delicious home-cooked meal at 4:30 followed by a brief talk; then time for couples to discuss the presentation together privately as a couple; concluding with adoration in the church and done by 7:00 p.m.

We hope that a nice dinner and your children lovingly cared for will give you and your spouse an opportunity to meet with other couples and to enjoy excellent presentations.  Make it a date night and please join us on the dates listed below.  You don’t have to cook, clean up, or even find a babysitter.  You and your children can be home by 7:30 p.m. to have some family time together before bedtime.

Your RSVP by would be greatly appreciated to secure dinner seating and childcare spots.

2.  Dinner is prepared (free) – no cooking or clean up necessary for the couples to attend.
