Handmaidens Tea - 09/25/10

The St. Philips Handmaidens Tea was held on Saturday afternoon, September 25th. The “Tea Room” in Miss Naomi’s classroom offered a private setting with elegantly arranged tables, fitting for the occasion.  Over a cup of tea (or iced tea) and refreshments, we spent time in friendly conversation before listening to Maria Roeber, our special guest, who talked about her desire to offer her medical nursing skills in serving the poor in Tanzania.  Khouriye Elizabeth led opening and ending prayers and each Handmaiden was given a book about the life of the Theotokos, our true role model for all Orthodox women.

The Handmaidens Tea was the perfect launch for the St. Philip's Handmaidens. Future activities are being firmed up, including workshops for Holy Bread baking and icon flower decorating, plus Holy Week activities.  We welcome any and all young ladies ages 6 to 18 in our parish to join the Handmaidens group.  Please see Beth McClintock for more information or to be added to our Handmaiden updates.
