Shop with the Sisters
Submitted By Teresa Schmidt
Mark your calendar for November 23 and 24. ItÕs time to ÒShop with the Sisters!Ó DonÕt miss the Dominican Sisters Annual Holiday Boutique. The Dominican Sisters, and over 50 volunteers, are busy creating and preparing handmade crafts, ornaments, holiday toys, baked goods, and their Dominican Olive Oil and old-world fruitcakes.
This year, Sister Rose Marie Hennessy, Motherhouse Administrator, initiated online pre-ordering of Dominican Olive Oil and famous holiday fruitcakes! Over 850 bottles of olive oil have been pre-ordered and will be waiting for pick-up and payment at the will call booth.
Global Treasures, a new booth on display, will feature origami, traditional Christmas tree stars made by the Sisters in Germany, and hand-woven gifts made by indigenous women from Chiapas who work with the Sisters in Mexico.
Other popular booths feature holiday wreaths and decorations, homemade cookies and breads, knitwear, household goods, crafts, cards and stationery created by the Sisters, local artists, jewelry, and a general store offering Motherhouse persimmons. There will be hands- on activities for children and all of us who are children at heart!
