Dear St. Mary's and Holy Trinity Families,
This year will be our seventh year for providing Prayer Blankets to nursing home residents! The project this year is being headed up by St. Mary's Pro-Life Club and God Squad and Holy Trinity's Pro-Life Club and Columba Family. For those of you that are new to the schools, this project involves donating material and making wheelchair size fleece blankets for nursing home residents. There is no sewing involved. Instructions on how to make blankets will be left at both school offices.
- 2 one yard pieces of coordinating fleece
- a good pair of cutting scissors
- a 4 inch square piece of cardboard
- a heavy duty metal tape measure
The workshop is scheduled for Friday, November 4th from 4:00pm-6:30pm at Holy Trinity in the cafetorium. The bus will be available for St. Mary's students to ride to Holy Trinity if they are interested in participating. A sign up sheet will be placed in the school office a week before the workshop. A permission slip will need to be filled out by those riding the bus. We are always in need of as many parents as possible to help out with the younger children at the workshop. The blankets are made by cutting the borders into strips and then knotting them. As each pair of strips are tied into a knot, a prayer is said for the resident who receives the blanket. The blessing of the blankets will be held at the St. Mary's Mass on Friday, December 2nd. The nursing home will be chosen after the workshop in order to see how many blankets we have available. The date of delivery is still pending due to school conflicts. We are looking at around the beginning of December and before the final exams.
COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS: Hours are awarded according to time spent buying
material, making blankets at home, or participating at the workshop.
DONATIONS NEEDED: We are in need of donations of fleece. If you are unable to participate in the workshop or make blankets at home, you will receive 1 hour of parent community service for donating 2 of one yard pieces of fleece (this makes one blanket).
Please leave donated material at the school offices.
If you are able to make blankets or donate material, please contact me at email@example.com to let me know how many. This helps me to figure out which nursing home to choose according to the number of blankets that are made. We don't want to leave anyone out. Contacts for any questions may be directed to myself or to the following St. Mary's Pro-life Coordinator, Joe Smith, Pro-Life Club coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much in advance for helping with this wonderful project! Last year we were able to give about 100 blankets to Park Place Manor Nursing Home in belton. They were so touched by the fact that someone took so much time to say prayers for them while making the blankets. Many are often moved to tears and we received thank you letters from residents. This whole project is a great way to teach our children about respecting all life especially the elderly.
May God bless you all!!!

Oct 15, Saturday, is the date set for the nationwide rosary rally in honor of our Lady of Fatima. As many of you know, Oct 13, 1917, is her feast day and this Oct 13 is the 99th year anniversary of her apparition. I have registered as a rosary captain again and we will have our rally at Holy Trinity Catholic High School sidewalk facing Walmart on W Adams. We will begin at 1030 holding up signs consecrating our country to God through Mary. The actual rosary will begin at 1130 and should end by noon. I encourage (urge,beg,plead) you to physically come and join us if you are able; for the sake of our souls and our nation. And please pass the word around. The last count from America Needs Fatima is that there are over 16,000 rallies to be going on at around the same time with the intention of flooding heaven with rosaries. Now more than ever especially this election year and the many conflicts in the world and our nation are prayers needed. Now more than ever, her message from 1917 still urges us to sacrifice much and turn away from our sinfulness and the sinfulness of others. Please join me and many others to sacrifice this bit of time for God."
"If you come, please bring signs. I will have some signs. If you need to, you may also bring lawn chairs."

Looking for 3 student volunteers to run the ‘haunted bounce house’ at our Saturday 29 Oct Halloween party.
Volunteers would run the gate, and operate the special spooky effects around the house. Estimated time commitment is 7 hours each.
Contact Mrs. Fette if you want to participate. Great way to earn a lot of service hours.
Ms. Dowling is offering knitting and crochet lessons after school Tuesday through Thursday. We will be meeting in the library from 4-5 pm. If you are curious about the baffling, yet useful art of crochet, or find the creation of beautiful textiles using only sticks and string downright mystifying, drop by! All skill levels are welcome, from beginner to expert. After we’ve learned a few simple techniques, we will be making charity items for donation.
Bring a hook and compatible yarn. If you do not have these items or unsure of what to purchase, these may be borrowed during the meeting.
