Sisterhood Jam

Natalie with her jam!

The Saints Joachim and Anna Sisterhood hosted a Jam making day, led by Natalie Kramer. We had a wonderful turnout and the Jam we made was a “sweet success”. Everyone took a jar of jam home which was a special treat! Big thanks to Natalie Kramer for leading the class! Let’s wish her well as she prepares to begin her College Journey at Texas A &M! Gig em’ Girl!

Sisterhood Class
Sign up and join the Sisterhood on Saturday March 19th from 12:30-3:00pm in the Fellowship Hall for a class in making Pysanky! 
Pysanky is an ancient Slavic folk art that predates Christianity whose symbols originally had pagan significance.  When the people of the Kievan Rus received Christianity in 988, the pagan symbols took on new Christian meaning. Pysaty means "to write" and the art of Pysanky is simply writing on eggs with wax and dyes. Time spent making these beautiful eggs can be a spiritually meditative exercise to practice during Lent. Come and learn!  Here's what you need to know:
  • If interested please sign up by replying to this email or signing up on the sign up sheet posted in the Fellowship Hall or speaking with Linda Bowka or the Kramer girls.
  • This class is NOT for children younger than middle school.  We work with raw eggs and lit candles. Men are welcome to come and learn.
  • No supplies are required but we need to know the number of people attending so we are prepared.  If you would like to make a small donation to our Sisterhood it would be appreciated.
Linda Bowka, Adrienne, Natalie, Sophia and Mollie Kramer
