Our 2019 Holiday Craft Fair
On Saturday, November 9 our doors opened to a generous crowd of supporters who rushed in with great anticipation to purchase a vast variety of holiday gifts & home-baked scones and cookies. Sr. Rose along with talented & creative Residents, volunteers and staff worked throughout the year to make one-of-a-kind ceramic, wood and fabric creations for the fair.
The Novitiate had two tables of handmade cards and knitted items for sale in the lobby. We thank our novices who created the most beautiful cards, crocheted and knitted items and joined us for the day.
Chef Angie made three kinds of cookies and Queen of Peace traditional scones for the bake sale.
What makes this day special is that it is more than just a sale. The day is a celebration of the silent humility and dignity of our Residents, who have used their hands to make creations that have become so special to those who come to purchase them. This is the Mission of the Little Sisters; to celebrate and honor our elderly. They are a gift from God!
Thank you to all who supported this wonderful tradition with a visit to our Home.
