How to Attend
Become a hostess! Any woman in the parish may be a table hostess. The table hostess invites five to seven of her female friends. The hostess sets her table, with the year’s theme in mind and provides a dessert for her guests. It is truly a night for her to show her friends how much she cares for them under the hue of candlelight.
Hostess registration opens Oct. 1 every year
. The hostess provides all of her own table settings except the table cloth, which is provided by CtR at a nominal cost. Tables can seat eight people – one hostess and five to seven guests – and are limited to the first 30 registrants.
Additional information about the program theme and table hostess guidelines are provided through a mandatory table hostess meeting. Information will also be available in the bulletin.
