Table Ministry

Jesus did much of his teaching around a table as he 'seasoned' lives with stories and examples of how to live in love.  He taught with very simple, down to earth stories full of meaning.

We would like to see small faith sharing groups come to life here at St. T's and to do the same as we develop this new ministry called 'Table Ministry'. 

Come share your faith around a table in the Antioch Room beginning Monday, April 28 from 6:00-8:00pm.  We will meet for six weeks on Mondays (excluding Monday, May 26) at the same time and same place. 

There is no reservation needed at this table and the only 'utensils' you will need will be your Bible and an 'appetite' for sharing your  prayers, your faith, and your friendship. No 'black tie' needed.

If you have questions about the 'menu' feel free to contact Cindy Jenkins at 219-988-2398.

Celebrate Your "Sparkle"!  

Mothers, daughters, and friends of all ages are invited to attend our Mother-Daughter Breakfast in Avila Hall from 8:30-11:00am on Saturday,May 3, 2014.

God has given us all gifts to share, come find out how we can use our gifts to “sparkle” our way through life or how to get it our “sparkle” back into our lives so we can serve each other and our Lord.

We have a fashion show planned and our own Karen Melacha will be showing us some tricks to "get our sparkle out" by wearing our best color(s).


Please bring a breakfast type dish (bagels, doughnuts, casserole, fruit, muffins, OJ, milk) to share with everyone!

If you have questions, please feel free to call Cindy Jenkins at 219-988-2398.  Please RSVP below:
