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.

Hello from Buseesa, Uganda!
