During Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity-sponsored Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Spring Break, some of our Sisters, International Sister Students and a young woman from China also attending SLC, joined a group of quilters in St. Anna, WI.
Here women get together twice a week during the months of January, February and March at the home of Lydia and Ken Turba, parents of our Sister Elaine Turba, to work on these hand-made items. When completed, the warm bundles are shipped through the Salvatorian Warehouse, St. Nazianz, WI to places of need throughout the world.
It was good to be part of a ministry that women have been doing in church groups for almost two centuries. A supportive sharing of conversation and handiwork, it is also a practical way of responding to real need.
