Let’s continue celebrate the New Year by reviving a tradition dating back to the 17th Century! Please join the Handmaidens of the Lord of St John’s for an old time “Kaffeeklatsch” i.e. a lovely afternoon of coffee, a variety of specialty Central European pastries, refined entertainment and, of course, conversation and fellowship! Bring your favorite coffee cup, one that has special significance to you. *RSVP through the Evite website by January 2, 2019 or telephone Sabrina Messenger at (480) 465-9872. She will be special ordering some of the desserts, so she’d like to have a good number as to how much to order. Also, please indicate any food sensitivities or restrictions you may have so that accommodation may be made. Childcare will be provided, so moms, please consider attending. Future Handmaidens of the Lord over the age of 7 are welcome to attend this specific gathering. In lieu of an Akathist, the Handmaidens of the Lord will be attending Vespers together that day as a group. Dress Code: “Period” attire is encouraged, but please wear something nicer than jeans.
