  Largest cup of tea-world record set by Mercy Health System

 Mercy officials said the teacup has long been recognized as a symbol of hospitality in the Sisters of Mercy heritage and harkens back to a story of Mercy foundress Catherine McAuley, who on her deathbed, implored her caretakers to "see that the Sisters have a comfortable cup of tea when I am gone."

   The previous Guinness world record for the Largest cup of tea measured 400 litres, in a cup 4 ft high by 4 ft wide, and was prepared by Lancashire Tea on 13 November 2008.

   "The vision for the Celebration Cup stems from the annual Mercy Day Celebration which rejuvenates the 'Mercy Spirit' and rekindles the service standards for which Mercy coworkers are known for," MHSK President and CEO John Woodrich said.
   "However, this year we invited the entire community to enjoy this celebration and share in the local Mercy hospitality."

   Mercy Director of Nutritional Services J.D. Webster, the organizer of the teacup event, has engaged a wide variety of sponsors, volunteers and media outlets to participate in the celebration.

   "Local businesses have made significant contributions to the event by supporting the cost of food, picnic supplies and even the materials to construct the Largest cup of tea," Webster said.
