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.

-Scavenger Hunt
-Fashion Show
-Group Activity, such as Tai Chi or Chi Gong, etc.
-A Live Concert (broadcast using Facebook or another online venue)

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.
