The Annual Mission Benefit Bazaar of the Dominican Sisters of Peace in Great Bend on Nov. 9, was once again a wonderful success!
We Dominican Sisters of Peace and Associates are awe-fully thankful to the City of Great Bend and the Great Bend Tribune for its excellent advertisement of our Mission Bazaar, and to all our friends in surrounding areas for your continuing response to this effort to raise funds to assist others. Because you, our friends, create items for the sale all during the year, because you come the week before to prepare the auditorium for the sale, and because you come as generous shoppers on the actual day, this bazaar becomes truly an area-wide community that helps needy and deserving people across a global boundary. The Dominican Sisters of Gusau, Nigeria, a daughter community of the original Great Bend Sisters, and the people whom they serve in Ghana and Grenada, as well as in their home country, are deeply grateful that they once again benefit from your care and generosity. The economic poor here in Kansas and Colorado and in many areas where the Dominican Sisters of Peace and our Associates continue caring service, will also know our gratitude to each benefactor of this bazaar.
Please know that each benefactor to this effort, especially the businesses of Great Bend and the generous people of the surrounding area, are daily remembered in the prayer of the Dominican Sisters of Peace and our Associates wherever we minister.
Peace and blessings to each of you,
Sister Elaine Osborne OP
