Every Thursday & Friday night our parish invites community members to join us for a warm meal and fellowship in our Hospitality Center. The event, formerly known as Brother André Cafe, is sponsored by a different partner parish or organization each week, with groups preparing the meal and bringing volunteers to help serve and build community.
This event is not possible without dedicated volunteers and partner organizations that sponsor the event on a monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly basis. Our current sponsors groups are Christ the King Parish, Holy Redeemer Parish, Resurrection Parish, University of Portland, Notre Dame of Club of Portland, and Jesuit High School.
Beginning in January 2012, we expanded the program and began efforts to create a new model of sponsorship for partner parishes and organizations. Ideally, a parish or group would sign up for a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly time slot during the year. New groups are encouraged to shadow another group’s night to get a feel for the program, and to sponsor an initial event before making any ongoing commitment. It can also be an opportunity for parish staff, parishioners, church groups, youth groups, and families to share in an event.
If your parish, school, youth group, alumni club, office, or other group would like to learn more about sponsoring an event, please contact our Evening Hospitality Coordinator, Lindie Burgess:
