Wyoming Diocese News - A Tea with a Purpose
Church of Our Saviour Hartville

Years ago, the ladies of the Church of Our Saviour Hartville had an idea to host a tea. We would invite the women in the communities of Hartville and Guernsey. As we planned the event we decided to make it a luncheon and invite our fellow parishioners in Wheatland, Glendo, Torrington, Douglas, and Lusk. The idea was a success from the first luncheon and has continued over the years.
The ladies of the church decorated tables with their china and accessories and the ladies who attended loved it. The ladies were in awe of those first tables and anxiously await the next years’ event, which is always held the first Sunday in May. Since our parish is small we have invited other ladies in the community to participate in the table decorating and they are happy to participate. This is a free event for the ladies, but we do take a free will offering that began around year three. This offering has been used for various outreach projects such as Marge Cares, Kiteto, Salvation Army in Huntsville, AL., missions, Cathedral Home, ERD, and Samaritans Purse and this year to Our Fathers House, Ethete. Over the years the donations have amounted to over $3000.
We recently hosted our tenth luncheon and had a wonderful turnout. Sixty-eight ladies filled our parish hall to enjoy a salad and dessert luncheon, fellowship, and listen to the inspiring message that Rev. Roxanne Jimerson Friday, the Wind River Coordinator for the Diocese of Wyoming delivered. Planning for next years event has already begun. We love doing this event and are happy to host all the ladies that come. If you are interested in attending the event in the future, please contact us.
