COFFEE HOSTS 2020
If you’ve hosted previously, you’ve already received an email asking you sign up for a Sunday in the first six months of next year. Please contact Sheila Gorsuch (email@example.com) so that we can complete the roster and publish before the Advent Festival comes around [December 15th]. Thanks to all for volunteering — see you during Coffee Hour! If you haven’t hosted before, maybe this is your chance to help with a vital part of the St Anselm’s calendar.
