First Friday Tea, a happy tradition at SXU, returns on Fri., Sept. 7, welcoming all faculty and staff to the Butler Reception Room at any time between 2 to 3:30 p.m.
The usual delights of tea, coffee, scones, clotted cream, and more will be available, along with the pleasure of one another’s company as the new academic year gets underway.
Staff from the new Office for University Ministry will host this inaugural Tea, and they offer the following hints of their theme. Hint 1: Staff and faculty are encouraged to come two-by-two, taking the opportunity to be especially attentive to inviting new members of the SXU community to this informal event. Hint 2: University Ministry staff promise some interesting ark objects as part of the afternoon’s décor. (And no, that wasn’t a typo…so are you guessing the host group’s biblical theme?)
First Friday Tea honors SXU’s core value of hospitality and the Sister of Mercy tradition of “a comfortable cup of tea.” All faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to drop by.
