People often think of giving something up for Lent, a favorite treat or activity.The Dominican Sisters encourage sharing of gifts during Lent. Sr. Lupita “Lupe” Silva went to work on a special project: sewing 41 dresses for impoverished children.
Sr. Roseline Elemowu will transport the dresses when she visits her home in Nigeria before returning to her studies at Aquinas in August. Sr. Angelina Abeyta and Dominican Center Lead Receptionist Kit Fessenden assisted in sewing and detailing the dresses. Pictured left to right: Kit Fessenden, Sr. Lupe Silva, Sr. Angelina Abeyta and Sr. Roseline Elemowu.
There is talk of a a sewing circle to make more dresses sometime in the future. Whether you are an avid seamstress or a novice, let Sr. Lupe or Kit know if you are eager to get involved on the next project.
