Hearts and quilts as wide as the world!

Sr. Marge Mouch has been ministering at the formation house in Buseesa, Uganda for over a year. One of her passions is quilting, a craft she honed when ministering in Eastern Kentucky.

It turns out the young women in Uganda have a knack for quilting, too. After practice with purses and sample squares, each formee worked on a portion of a quilt that was then sewn together by a friend of Sr. Marge's in Eastern Kentucky.

The quilt will be raffled off at the Sisters of Notre Dame 4th of July Festival in Covington, KY.

Jason had the idea after my talk about the Religious Retirement Fund to collect money 4X a year to support our SND medical/retirement needs. His idea was very clever..."
