In Stitches “Thank You” from Deb Zent

Many thanks to the 90 volunteers that came last Saturday to help sew gowns as a witness to the dignity of hospice patients. We were able to completely finish 160 gowns (our previous record, was 131!), and another 85 more are in various stages of completion. As well, 40 gowns were completely done, just ready to bag since they were completed by volunteers in anticipation of the event.  Thank you as well to those who volunteered to take the unfinished gowns home to complete the sewing on them.

Our next event is scheduled for Saturday, July 21st.  For more information about upcoming events or about the history and process of this ministry, check out the website.

If anyone would like to donate 2.5 yards of washed and dryer-dried cotton or flannel for a future gown, leave it in the parish office (attention: Chad). Thanks again!
