HO HA HE, LE MITA COLA (Welcome, my friends)
This beautiful quilt from the Diocese of South Dakota is going to be raffled at the 30th Diocesean Convention to be held in Stephenville, Tx., Nov 2 and 3. The money raised will be used for the Native American Youth Ministry in South Dakota on the reservations. In the last 2 years Father Rob Swarz has worked tirelessly on the Standing Rock Reservation that is situated in both South and North Dakota. He has had great success. The Episcopal Church Women of South Dakota , wrote, submitted and received a grant from the United Thank Offering in the amount of $64,000 to build a meeting house on Standing Rock for the women and young people of the reservation. The next big push will be on the Pine Ridge Reservation. If you would like to be a part of this very important and worthwhile ministry, you can buy raffle tickets at the convention or you can just to make a donation. Please make checks payable to the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, with a note that it is for the Native American Youth Ministry of South Dakota.
