Supporting Catholics (especially singles) age 30 and older ~ living out our faith through social, service, and activities. This is an opportunity to strengthen and grow in the Catholic faith while meeting like-minded Catholic adults in a fun and relaxed social setting.
Come with an open mind, an open heart and ready to meet new friends and plan social outings.
WE DEFINE SINGLE as NOT MARRIED ! We have members from all four "D's of being Single". Divorce, Death, Delay and Design. All unwed Catholics over the age of 30 are welcome to join us. We have experienced several weddings over the past years and so now we also have grown to include our "ALUMNI" as well. (Hence that "& More").
We are a group of Catholic adults in our 30's, 40's, and 50's and above. This is not a young adult group and it is not a match making group. Plenty of those ministries exist. This is for Catholic adults - many who are single and tired of having to be a third wheel at a parish functions. We welcome those who have been away from the Catholic faith, are considering returning to the Catholic Faith, or are just curious to learn more about our Catholic faith. Although we are open to non-Catholic guest attending our events, this group will always come from a Catholic Christian prospective.
We experience a variety of fun events often led or hosted by one of our very own members such as biking, camping, hiking, going out to dinner, attending concerts, amusement parks, the beach and more. We also travel to various parish events from Praise & Worships, Fish Fries, Mardi Gras Parties, and Parish Festivals. If your parish has a fun activity and you want to share this event with our group - simply add it to the top where it says "Suggest an event..."
If you identify yourself as Catholic, and are looking for a more active social life then ~ ~ ~ come on out and play.
Come mingle with other Catholics over a dinner out, at a museum or a show, play mini-golf or bowling, come camping, hiking or biking, enjoy a variety of spiritual activities and help make a difference in the world with our group service projects.
We are advertised in Parish Bulletins, Spirit FM radio station, the Christian Voice Newspaper, the St. Pete Diocese website and of course our own Facebook Pages and more. Although we request that everyone utilize the links and RSVP on the meetup site, Catholic Singles arrive to our events from a variety of means so RSVP totals are not always accurate.
We try to keep expenses low and acquire group discounts when available. We do request a 12/year donation- that's only $1/month to help cover the cost of maintaining the website, supplies, and other misc expenses. We can do this because of our generous members who understand our groups is what we make of it. Many of our events have little or no fees to attend. Many events are hosted at a discount or are included at no additional charge for our paid members.
