Church coffee 22nd of April

Hi everybody!

I think it is time for our group to contribute a bit to our parish St. Thomas. Every Sunday, after the 10.00 mass (in Swedish), we have a wonderful tradition of church coffee. This is an opportunity to meet and talk with people in the parish. To be able to have this, the parish needs people to prepare the church coffee every Sunday.

On Sunday the 22nd of April, our group will prepare church coffee!

This means that we need to:

  • Bake some cakes (for about 80 people)
  • Prepare coffee and tea water before mass (be there at 9.00 am)
  • Put the cakes on plates, cut them
  • Serve everything
  • Clean the tables, wash the dishes (Finnish about 1.00 p.m.)

The money goes to the parish, but you can take the money you spent on baking.

If we are many, we can split the tasks. I propose we can split into following:

– baking

– preparing (9.00 a.m. – 10 a.m.)

– serving (11 – 11.30)

– cleaning (11.30 a.m. – about 1 p.m.)

I will make a list and put it at the convent (where we gather). Please put your name by the task that you want to take. You are welcome to take several tasks.

Next lunch and Church coffee

Hi everybody! For next Wednesday lunch, 3rd of March, Nestor will be talking about the road to Santiago, about his walk to Santiago de Compostella, a popular pilgrimage road that is located in northern Spain. Btw, if you want to cook one of the Wednesdays, please contact me.

Church coffee is a nice tradition in our parish. It is based on the will off  people in the parish that want to put in some effort to make it happen. Unfortunatly, we don’t have it every weekend. So, I thought that we could help with that some weekend. Maybe April the 18th? We will have to bake something and make coffee and boil water for tea. Tea and coffee is provided by the parish and we can take money to cover our costs. The rest goes to the parish.


Lunch after Mass, Sunday 1st of November

Everybody is welcome to lunch at the Dominican priory after Mass (10 AM in the parish church of St. Thomas) on Sunday, 1st of November.

As with the Wednesday lunches, we would need two or three people who could help with buying and cooking the food (a simple meal). We will ask for a contribution from the participants in order to cover the purchase costs. If you are interested, please contact me on 0730-468250.
