Below is a list of some of our fellowship groups at St. David’s. Please use the accompanying contact email to let us know you are interested in participating.
Episcopal Veterans Fellowship
In the middle ages, returning warriors practiced the spiritual discipline of pilgrimage. We’re still doing it at the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship. EVF meets Tuesdays at 1900 and is open to all veterans. For more information, please contact David Peters.
Friday Morning Moms
A group of mothers of preschool/elementary school age children that meet weekly, 10 a.m.–noon for conversation about life and parenting. email@example.com.
Foyer Groups are a fun and easy way for 10-12 parishioners to gather together on a regular but informal basis for purely social reasons – to enjoy one another’s company, to strengthen bonds of community, to meet new members, and just to get to know other people who share a common interest in St. David’s but with whom we might not otherwise interact. They are a great way to make our sometimes-too-large-seeming parish feel smaller and warmer. There is no agenda or plan – just casual fellowship and a monthly meal, usually served in someone’s home. Groups are made up of singles, couples, young people, retired folks, etc., in other words, a cross section of the parish. Newcomers are especially invited to join. Groups are formed in September and March. firstname.lastname@example.org.
GLEE (Gay, Lesbian & Everybody Else in the Whole Wide World)
A fellowship group for couples, singles, and families, gay and straight, young and old. We have informal coffee meet-ups in Holy Grounds (St. David’s coffee shop, opposite the front desk) at 10:25 a.m. on the second Sunday of each month. All are also invited to join us for biannual potlucks — one in the summer and one at Christmas. This group is characterized by their hospitality and their devotion to living out the Christian faith. For more information, write to email@example.com.
HOME (Hispanic Outreach Ministry Efforts)
HOME celebrates and recognizes the diversity of St. David’s parishioners through the integration of Hispanic religious customs and traditions in worship services and events. The ministry offers an opportunity to enrich the St. David community and provides a welcoming worshiping environment for people from Hispanic cultures and traditions. The St. David’s Downtown Posada and commemoration of the Dia de los Muertos are two events sponsored by this ministry. Contact Minerva Skeith.
A group for “empty nesters” interested in making friends and extending fellowship. They hold potluck suppers, attend musical events, and try to take advantage of Austin’s offerings. For newcomers, as well as long-time members. firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. David’s Men’s Group
Meets the 3rd Thursday of each month on the Labyrinth, 6–8 p.m., for steak and lively conversation. email@example.com.
St. David’s Women’s Group
An intergenerational group of women who meet the 1st Wednesday each month for dinner and small group conversations on varying topics. firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. David’s Movie Group
Meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 11:15 a.m. to discuss a movie. Movies are first-run films with interesting theological and ethical content. email@example.com.
For writers, aspiring or accomplished, published or hoping, poet or novelist, book or screen; the guild meets weekly to share work and receive feedback and encouragement.
