Members of the Cabrini Literary Guild gathered for their Friendship Tea last Saturday at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church in La Cañada.

Inspired by the tradition of a proper English tea, the church guild hall was transformed into an English garden of flowers and greenery. The tea tables were dressed in lavender cloths and centered with pots of English ivy.

An antique silver coffee percolator, filled with beautiful flowers, enhanced the buffet table filled with a selection of scones, delicate finger sandwiches and scrumptious desserts made by guild members. Rosa Hohman was chair of the event and Marie Urrutia was co-chair.

Guild president Brenda Lantieri presented Fr. Norm Supancheck, the guild’s moderator, with a special plaque in celebration of his 50th year in the priesthood.
