Blanket-Making Project at Brescia University

A crowd that included 13 Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, some Brescia University staff and more than 50 Brescia students made short work of a service project on the evening of Sunday, March 17, 2019. The group was tasked with cutting and knotting fringe on 10 no-sew fleece blankets that were being donated to local Burmese families and Crossroads of Hope, an emergency shelter for women and children in Owensboro, Ky. They met in O’Bryan’s dining hall at Brescia to make the blankets, which was followed by prayer and pizza. The service project was done to help celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14).

“We had an amazing turnout,” event organizer Sister Betsy Moyer said. “It was wonderful to see everyone working, sharing, laughing and communicating. It was truly a blessing and loads of fun!” She expressed gratitude for all who helped. Sister Betsy ministers in the Curriculum Resource Center and as Field Experience Coordinator and Office Manager at Brescia.
