Red Hat Society

Red Hot Purples Angels Chapter


Over the past decade Red Hat Societies have emerged across the united States as coming-of-age organizations for women. Those over fifty are entitled to wear red hats to all gatherings; those younger than fifty wear pink hats insteadRed Hat Society as red hatters-in-training. It's all for fun at St. Paul United Church of Christ where our chapter of the Red Hat Society is known as the Red Hot Purple Angels.

Monthly gatherings and outings are announced and updated through the Tidings newsletter, Morning Tide bulletin, and individual mailed notices. Whether your hat color is red or pink, you are invited to join the company of St. Paul women for the fun of it. Call the church office for more information.
