Hi there! I’m new and so I hope I’m doing this right!
Our parish started ‘Guess Who is Coming to Dinner’. You signed up with info about your family then they grouped you with like families (young couples, young couples with small families, large families etc) and then one person started and hosted a potluck. And away it went. We met some very good friends and some others only came once but it was nice to put a name to the face of the people in the crying room or sitting next to you. My husband and I enjoyed it!
Another help for me was a mothers bible study during the school year and then a mother of toddlers group that met in different parks in the summer weekly.
Hope I was of help!
