Olde English Tea

St. James Wichita celebrates Faith, Community, and Christ with our annual Olde English Tea event! Enjoy some of the best baked goods around with your friends and neighbors. Proceeds go to area nonprofit agencies.

The first Olde English Tea dates back to 1921, when Bishop Wise approached the women of the parish requested help to raise $300. In the beginning, the tea was held once every three years, but it quickly became an annual event. It often is referred to as Kansas’ Biggest Tea Party. Information on the event will be posted below!
