I was interested to read this post since I moved from Indianapolis just over a year ago. I was involved in divorce ministry for a good number of years under the auspices of the Family Life Office at the Archdiocese. I had been interested in having an event of this type several years ago. I see that the date has passed. How was the turn out? I hope that anytime you schedule an event like this that may be for singles in the Indianapolis area that you would get word out to the Family Life offices at each of the neighboring dioceses. Many singles are looking for fun social events such as these.

Hi Carol - welcome to the Forums! wave Post often and get to know others here - it's a good group!

We had 19 ppl attend mass together, about 30 for the pitch in cook off, and approx 23 for the pitch in brunch on Sunday. All CM events are member driven - there is no formal organizing or financial support from CM admin. While sometimes our local Indy outings are as simple as meeting at a restaurant for dinner together (dutch) - a handful of them are much more involved and take quite a bit of time, effort, and expense. We generally put an event page here on CM to open it up to other CMers. Many parishes have a CM advertisement in their weekly bulletins, so you may want to encourage the Family Life offices to promote CM membership as a way for Catholic singles to participate in get togethers with other like-minded people. Because the Indy group holds many parties at our personal residences, we need control of who we bring into our homes, to keep track of attendees to make sure pitch ins are covered, etc. I personally would not feel comfortable opening it up beyond our control.

My best advice for anyone looking for a fun singles outing is for them to take the bull by the horns and put one together themselves. Set the date, time, location and promote it - encourage others to attend, and spread the word. That's how we all started.

Maybe we can get you over here for one of our summer concert outings. Hotel Rob is open for overnight guests after the concerts - many times we head back there to talk or play more games - we tend to go late in the night when we get together, lol.

We've received several thank you's and kudos for putting on a great weekend, and for remembering a few members who could not join us this time. There are also several attendees who've praised the "Indy Glow" feeling they still enjoy. (LOVE that feeling - it's a 'high' like no other!)

faint faint heart ahhh - it fills my heart to know we touched people in positive ways. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed themselves - that's why we put forth the effort we do.

Happy Valentine's Day Plus One! rose
