Bracelets of Solidarity

Alumni Parent Jolie Monasterio has an inspiring calling to serve! Not only is she still active as a volunteer at All Saints and continues to help as needed with our extended care program, but she is currently in Singapore and Malaysia for 3 weeks serving in centers facilitated by the Good Shepherd Sisters. These centers care for women and children who are victims of violence.

Jolie shares her eagerness to serve with our students as well. Throughout Lent, the children of our morning extended care program and youth from St. Ann’s Parish spent many hours braiding bracelets that Jolie took with her to these centers. Together, they prayed that each person who received a bracelet will experience love and healing in their life again. Before leaving, Fr. Patrick of St. Ann’s Parish blessed the 462 bracelets that had been made.

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
Psalm 27:13
