MUNSTER | St. Paul Episcopal Church will host a Valentine Tea, "A Little History, A Little Mystery and Lots of Love" from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 8 in the Cloister in the Woods dining facility adjacent to the church, 1101 Park Drive.

Two St. Paul parishioners and a National Valentine collector will display Vintage Valentines from the early 1900s to 1950s.

Parishioner Janet McCormack will have her Valentines on display.

"The collection started with my grandfather," she said. "He sent my grandmother valentines. They were married in 1900."

McCormack said she has about 20 Valentines.

"The one that was rather interesting to me is one that was given during the Depression," she said. "It was small but it shows that people did not have a lot of money back then. It was rather plain."

Doors will open for the tea at noon so guests can browse and shop Valentine items crafted by members of the following Episcopal churches - St. Barnabas in the Dunes in Gary, St. Paul, St. Timothy in Griffith and three other especially selected local crafters.

Lyrical Flutes will provide seasonal melodies and tea with savories and sweets will begin at 1 p.m. Valparaiso mystery writer Kate Collins will be a special guest and sign copies of her latest book "Throw in the Trowel" from The Flower Shop Mysteries series at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $20 per person. Tables will accommodate 4 to 8. Make reservations by calling (219) 838-3803 Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Payment must be received by Feb. 1.
