This fall, the Outreach & Justice Ministries of St. Michael’s will be discussing deserving programs which could use our help. We try to send to smaller ministries for which our dollars would mean a great deal. One such organization is Quilts for Empowerment (QFE), a pathway for obstetric-fistula survivors in Kenya to support themselves after repair surgery. QFE is an Oregon nonprofit which was started in 2015 by a Portland quilter. QFE is holding their annual benefit event on Saturday, November 4, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Wine Country Barn in Newberg. Pick up a card in the Gallery for more information about how you can support this event. Some of the beautiful work done by these women will also be available for purchase at the Red Door Artisan Fair on December 2. Use this opportunity to perhaps get some holiday shopping done while you support a very worthy organization!
All always welcome to become part of the regular O&J discussions; our meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall.
