A Nourishing Way to Fight Global Poverty – Mission Dinner Community
The Mission Dinner Community meets monthly, the second Sunday of the month September-May, for a delicious home-made dinner to raise funds for global poverty causes, and to plan partnership steps with organizations that minister to the poor and underprivileged. By participating with a suggested donation of $20 per adult and $5 per child, you’ll get a great meal, meet great folks from the parish, and support great causes. Right now, our main focus is to support the Dominican parish ministering to some very impoverished, yet beautiful communities in Mexicali, Mexico.
The dinners are casual and you can come and go at any point in the evening. We will have receipts available at the door for cash donations. The schedule of the evening:
6:00-7:00 p.m. Appetizers (6:00-6:30pm will be business time)
7:00-8:00 p.m. Dinner
If you are new to the Mission Dinner Community, please come and check us out. If you have been before and are so inclined, please consider bringing:
