Women's Advent Tea

Adult Education Committee at St. Mary Church is inviting all Women of St. Mary to attend the 2nd Annual Ladies Advent Evening Tea on Dec. 1, 2017 from 5:30 to 9 pm.

The Evening starts with MASS at 5:30 PM.

The ladies will then head to the school gym which will be transformed into a beautiful setting for an evening of fun, food, and friendship.

Tables are beautifully decorated by women of St. Mary who choose be a host sponsor for a table. Each table is different and unique as each hostess has prepared her with own ideas, decorations, and place settings for the women who are registered to attend.

Women can sign up and attend as:

·         A single participant

·         Or Bring a friend who also registers to attend

·         Or may be invited by a hostess to attend.

Women are invited to sponsor a table and become the hostess for that table. As a hostess you can invite friends and family to attend. The hostess would then pay for her guests if she chooses to or have her guest pay the registration fee, decorate her table, bring adult beverages and snacks and assist with serving her guests with the main meal.

Women can also become a hostess, decorate the table, bring adult beverages and snacks, and open up her table for anyone who attends as a single participant or with single friends.

Check out the table in the St. Joseph center for table settings from last year, get your sign-up sheet or pick up your hostess information packet to provide more ideas about how to prepare for the event.

The rest of the night consists of a light meal of soup and sandwich provided by Woodstock Public House, opportunities to win some fun raffle baskets, and listen to Sister Ellen Enright who will speak about how Mary’s advent journey brought the Light into the World!

So be sure to attend this year if you did not get a chance last year. Again all women are invited! Become a hostess for a table or come as a participant! We would like to see as many women as possible come out and enjoy the evening!

Cost of the evening is $15. Don’t forget to bring some extra dollars for the raffles! All proceeds go to St. Mary Women’s retreats and activities!
