Small Groups

Church can feel too big at times. St. Patrick’s offers a variety of small groups for fellowship, outreach,
and learning opportunities. We encourage members to participate in a small groups to experience a
greater sense of community.

Men’s Tuesday Morning Group –
On Tuesday mornings, a Men’s Group meets at St. Pat’s from 7am to 8am via Zoom.

Our goal for the Tuesday Men’s Group, and the meeting format, is intended to be an opportunity for
men of faith to casually gather and share an easy Scripture study. There is also a large amount of
fellowship and laughter. Everyone is welcome and if you can join us once, once in a while, or weekly,
that would be great!

The Tuesday Morning Group initiated several new ministries. The men have helped with the twice a
year Garage Sale. They have also gathered the funds to purchase a table and chairs for the
courtyard. They also sent Holiday Cards to those incarcerated in Ohio’s penal system. Finally, the
group organizes a Men’s Retreat for all the Men of St. Pat’s.

Later in the Day Saints Men’s Group –
The Later in the Day Saints fellowship group meets weekly on Thursday mornings at 10am in the
church library and is open to all men. The time we spend together has no formal agenda or specific
calling. It is simply an opportunity to share experiences and knowledge about a multitude of topics:
hobbies, sports, life stories, happenings at St. Patrick’s, local events, travel, and so much more. This
group has supported VBS with a group purchase of craft materials, and sharing a Southern brunch
prepared by Mother Cameron. LITDS organized an educational excursion to Procter Farm to learn
about their fresh food program, followed by lunch on site. We also enjoyed a group tour of The Ohio
State University stadium inside and out, including the marching band facility. The group is always
exploring ideas for other excursions.

Sacred Circles Women’s Groups
Sacred Circles has become very popular! These groups range from 12-20 members and enjoy
reading and sharing thoughts on a variety of books. These groups also support each other on
spiritual journey’s. Some groups invite guest speakers on a range of topics to enrich their lives. They
meet once a month and there are a variety of days and times offered to meet the schedules of
women.

The Sacred Circles gather to complete outreach activities throughout the year. They also sponsor a
women’s retreat for all women of the parish.
The third Tuesday of the month group led by Tracey Kubik is full with 13 members. We are enjoying
reading and sharing our thoughts on the book Inspired by Rachel Held Evans.

“St. Arbuck’s” –
St. Arbuck’s is a fun drop-in group that meets at Starbucks every Wednesday at 10:00am. We meet
at the Marysville Starbucks during the school year and in Old Dublin at Starbucks during the summer
months. Currently they are meeting via Zoom and drinking coffee from the comfort of their homes. All
are welcome to join us, one time or every week.

Foyer Groups–
A Foyer Group is a small group of adults, (8-10 people), who share meals and conversation together.
There are also groups for families who often plan an outing centered around children’s activities.Each
group typically meets four or five times throughout the year for dinner. This is a great way to meet
people who attend other services and who we would not have otherwise met. Currently these groups
are meeting via Zoom.

Purls of Wisdom –
This is a knitting group. Prayer shawls and pocket prayer shawls are their main focus. They are
always available in the Narthex. Help yourself! This is a very crafty group and every year they
sponsor an Advent Sale. All proceeds support a scholarship for a Honduras nursing school.
