Coffee Hour Host Rotation Schedule & Task List

Be Mindful of feast days and fast days marked in red


If you are unable to attend church on the Sunday that you have coffee hour, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with someone else on the coffee hour list to take your place. If you cannot find someone to cover for you, please contact Catherine and she will be happy to help.


It is important to mark on your calendar the Sundays that you host coffee hour so that you don't forget. If you forget, this results in others, who are unprepared, to assemble and organize coffee hour at the last minute and sometimes requires a person from the parish to make a trip to the grocery store during services. Therefore, please make sure you mark your calendar. 


You may now bring prepared foods to coffee hour such as salads, soups, sandwiches, casseroles, etc. Please note that you are not obligated to prepare a dish (or dishes) for coffee hour, individually packed snacks, cookies or donuts are still perfectly fine to bring if you wish to keep things simple. 


Try to bring just enough food for 1 Sunday to prevent too many leftovers from being stored in the refrigerator and in the food bin.
