An Invitation to Join us at the Dinner Table

Many families no longer dine together regularly. Their communication can be patchy and as a result relationships in the family suffer. 

The traditional Sunday roast hasn’t been a tradition in many households for decades but neither has regular mealtimes as a family. Children are busy on their smartphones or playing video games on their computers and mum and dad are otherwise engaged. 

It is not healthy for families or individuals to not communicate. As we witnessed during the pandemic lockdowns, people suffer mentally if interaction with others is restricted. 

Majellan Media has always been about helping families be the best that they can be. For more than 70 years we have assisted families with issues that are close to their hearts. Firstly, through The Majellan magazine and in more recent times through podcasts, and online articles.

So, we are on a mission to reunite families at the dinner table and therefore are pleased to announce the launch of The Dinner Table initiative with strategies to help families reconnect and communicate more effectively. 

We are calling it the The Dinner Table as we want to help families be closer, sharing and loving. The Dinner Table is not only an area for eating but a gathering place.  

Each week we want to share ideas that will help make gathering around the table enjoyable and meaningful for all members of your family and we will invite you to share your ideas and what has worked – and not worked for you. 

You could send us a photo of your family around the table sharing a meal, saying a prayer, playing a game of cards or talking about the day you have had.  

As part of this initiative each issue of our weekly Newsletter and The Majellan magazine will have a section titled The Dinner Table where people can also share recipes or family anecdotes. A series of podcasts around this theme is also planned while weekly social media posts will be an important feature. 

Stay tuned! More details to follow in the weekly newsletter and the Summer issue of The Majellan. 

Please join us at The Dinner Table. It’s a place where you can gather as a family.
