Abstract
From the birth of Christianity, family dinner has provided a steady immersion into Eucharistic spirituality. However as fewer families regularly cook and eat together, this vital link between the feast around the kitchen table and the Eucharistic banquet has been weakened. Using a small group format, this parish-based project provides an antidote for this troubling situation through a program to highlight the spiritual potency of preparing meals and dining in common. By confirming the sacred dignity of cooking, the program helps participants to recognize their work in the kitchen as a significant expression of their baptismal call to their ministry.
