St Aidan's celebrated their first annual Tea Party today, honoring the women and girls of our parish in memory of the child Mary who was presented to the Temple at age three.
Because of the cold, -15 (!!) we processed around the interior of the church while singing, carrying candles and lanterns, and the icon.
The women and girls were then served tea, juice, fruit and cookies. And since we had room at the table, the men and boys then joined us. Sometimes it is advantageous to belong to a small parish, lol.
Many thanks to Ellen for helping with the table setting and food.
