The Seminary Tea Committee in February welcomed 10 new members at its annual New Members Coffee, held at the Racquet Club in Portland.
The committee holds an annual tea that supports the education of Archdiocese of Portland seminarians.
Each new committee member is distinguished for service in community, parish and family life. Leaders say each brings talents, skills, enthusiasm and commitment that will ensure the committee’s tradition and mission.
