Dear Editor and Friends in Great Bend and the surrounding areas,
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 a much wider community to help needy and deserving people across a global boundary. The Dominican Sisters of Gusau, Nigeria, and the people whom they serve, have suffered from unrest and violence for longer than we want to remember. Now they once again know that we care not only about their faith development but also about their daily needs. And the poor that we can be among, here in Kansas and Colorado, will also know your caring love - as well as that of the Dominican Sisters of Peace and our Associates.
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
for the Dominican Sisters of Peace
