Tickets for St. Patrick’s annual Christmas Tea go on sale Tuesday, Nov. 19, at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd.

At  $5 each, these tickets sell out very quickly, so do not put it off — get your tickets right away. The annual Christmas Tea, scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 8, from 2-4 p.m., is a holiday tradition that is truly a not-to-be-missed event.

The Episcopal Church Women go all out to decorate the church in elegant holiday finery, using their best china and most beautiful table decorations. The buffet table will be filled with delightful treats sure to satisfy anyone’s holiday sweet tooth. There will also be door prizes for a few lucky winners.

The cost of the tickets is  intentionally low. Although the money made from the tea goes to help local charities, the women are also mindful of the fact that almost everyone is on a tight budget, especially during the Christmas season.

“We have always made enough money to cover the cost of the quilt that is raffled during our Shamrock Festival, with some money left over to donate to charity. There is no reason to exclude people with high prices,” said ECW president Linda Guy. Many buy tickets as gifts to friends and fill a whole table. We want everyone to be able to come and enjoy a beautiful afternoon of Christmas cheer.”

For more information, call the church office at 731-5801.
