Sisters of Bede

Sisters of Bede is the Women's Evening fellowship open to all women of the parish. The monthly potluck dinner meetings are held in Luther Hall at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of most months. The meetings are loosely structured. We pray together, enjoy a potluck meal, and have spiritual discussions. All women of the parish are invited to come join us for great food, fun, and fellowship!
The Sisters also staff and care for the parish book cart. This cart is available during coffee hours after both services. Parishioners are invited to donate books and take home books for their enjoyment.

The Sisters invite you to sponsor an event!  As the COVID-19 pandemic is winding down, we can now hold in-person small-group events (up to 8 people). Or, you can still sponsor a virtual party with no size limit. Proceeds from the events go to the church and its charities. You can sponsor an event individually, with a friend, or another family member.  

Here are just a FEW virtual event  ideas to consider.

-Virtual Dinner - Food ordered from restaurant,  guests join together on a Zoom  
-Cooking Demonstrations
-Scavenger Hunt
-Fashion Show
-Group Activity, such as Tai Chi or Chi Gong, etc.
-A Live Concert (broadcast using Facebook or another online venue)
-View a short video film  together, with follow up discussion
-Game Night
-Spiritual Guided Virtual Walk
-Kids of Bede event

Feel free to be creative, and check in if you want some ideas or feedback.
Please email or call Liz,  Daphne, Annette, or Tana if you would like to brainstorm or talk about logistics for your venue.

Our goal is to offer small group social gatherings, while continuing to raise funds for St. Bede's Outreach.

The Sisters of Bede are pleased to report that last year we raised $6796, gifting to the church's SB 50 Fund, Educate for Hope, Friends of Music, Neighborhood Youth Association, Spirit Sunday,  and Episcopal Relief and Development's COVID-19 Pandemic Response fund.

Our thanks to everyone for their support by hosting and attending events. We look forward to another fantastic series of great fun, food and fellowship!  Please return the form by September 28th.  We will use Sign Up Genius for signing up for venues. Details for sign up party will follow.

THESE VENUES ARE HELD AS ZOOM VIRTUAL EVENTS UNTIL THE JULY 2021 EVENTS.
