The mission of St. Sebastian Parish’s Socials is to create and provide a Christian-based community through RADICAL HOSPITALITY by fostering friendship and family values.
What is a Social?
A big bash, a party, a simple gathering, a competitive game – whatever the Social Hosts want it to be! A social could be for kids only, parents only, entire school or just your child’s grade. This is an opportunity to foster relationships within our school community while supporting our teachers! For past social ideas, check out the link below “view recent socials”.
Who and How Do You Host a Social?
Anyone can host! Once you decide to be a social host (or co-host with 2 or more friends), create and send out the invite asking for RSVP and payment. Promote your Social with help from HASA, school website, teachers and texting your friends! The hosts need to be prepared to cover all expenses so that 100% of ticket price supports our teachers! Please contact one of the Socials Committee Members listed on this site to get started today.
