Our Parish had a Dinner Dance last night.
Only the older six people in the family attended - and here are some pics before the event.
The dinner dance was fun!
Luke, Greg and Nick were here from Adelaide and they shared a table with Jonathon and some others from our parish Youth Group.
Gerry and I were at a table with some homeschooling couples.
I met these friends last year , when we moved to Sydney and through a local homeschooling group.
Our friends attend an evangelical AOG church and one friend said , while dancing last night ~ " Five years ago, I would never have imagined that we would go to a Catholic Dinner Dance - we just didn't know any Catholics. "
Another laughed and said she could have never imagined dancing with a priest - but she did and thought it was cool.
We all had a super time.
It is so excellent to have a time when friends can share their lives and faith and similarities and differences. While having a night of entertainment.
I had a few too many Bombay Gin and tonics.
And had a fantastic time dancing ( I love to "get my freak on", to quote Chalene Johnson. lol!).
