The Canterbury College Ministry is the fellowship group for GWU students. For the 2012-2013 year (September to April) it meets at 5 p.m. most Sundays at St. Mary's, 728 23rd Street. Activities include Bible study, fellowship dinners, community service and monthly Eucharists. Interested students should email email@example.com. The kickoff will be Sept. 9th. It will be an intro meeting with some social time, food, and Evening Prayer together.
Carpe Deum (Latin for “seize God”) is the St. Paul’s community and ministry for young adults, primarily in their 20s and 30s, but open to all. Carpe Deum meets weekly on Sundays at 7 p.m. following Evensong and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The group gathers in the atrium to go out to a local bar or restaurant, or will meet in the parish for snacks, drinks, and conversation. Service and social activities are varied and seasonal, and determined by the membership. For more information or to be added to the email listserv, contact Steven Chlapecka.
Beginning in August, Carpe Deum is partnering with St. John's Lafayette Square's Latrobe Fellowship to offer Theology on Tap. The group will meet monthly to eat, drink, and discuss life and spirituality. All are welcome and parishioners are encouraged to bring friends for these evenings of fellowship. The first session will take place on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. at Bier Baron (1523 22nd Street NW). The group will be joined by Bishop Mark Dyer, a former Bendictine Monk who will lead a discussion on the intersections of drinking beer and holiness for Christian monks. More information about future Theology on Tap gatherings will be coming soon. If you have questions, contact Steven Chlapecka.
Fidelitas (Latin for “faithfulness”) is the St. Paul's group for newly- and nearly-married couples (with or without children). The group supports parishioners in their vocation to the sacrament of marriage through a wide variety of activities, including book studies, guest lectures, happy hours, and social events. The group meets on a monthly basis, and newcomers are always welcome. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Paul's Moms is a fellowship group for all moms and moms-to-be. The group meets for refreshment, support, laughter, and renewal in the journeys as mothers and usually gets together in someone's home or another child-friendly space. For more information, please e-mail email@example.com. Drop-ins and children are always welcome.
The Tuesday Morning Fellowship meets on the first Tuesday of each month, from 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Carwithen Parlor. This group is an informal gathering for fellowship as expressed in Acts 2:42: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Coffee, tea and snacks are served. There is no planned program—just come, visit with one another, and enjoy fun, food, and fellowship. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Women’s Group gathers for potluck lunch on the fourth Sunday of each month from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in the Carwithen Parlor. The Women’s Group is a forum for women of faith to gather for fellowship. Meetings are used to study religious topics of mutual interest, to explore our shared beliefs and differences, and to provide one another encouragement and support.
