Weaving a Fabric of Faith: Our Common Thread

A workshop sponsored by the African American Catholic Council of Holy Savior Church --  in recognition of Black History Month -- was held at Newman University on February 18.

The workshop featured Lois Ruby, author of “Steal Away Home,” a historical fiction of a Quaker family in Kansas during the late 1850s who operate a station on the Underground Railroad. Quilters Juanita Roper and Lola Jenkins presented the varied differences and unique styles of quilting.

Featured was a grand display of quilts depicting the African-American experience from the Underground Railroad to the present. Performances by Holy Savior’s Liturgical Dancers to Alvin Ailey’s “Revelation “and the Men’s Ensemble “Ride the Chariot,” added to the level of historical significance and creativity of the workshop.

'LOVE Wichita' gives Holy Savior a chance to perform outreach

 The city-wide event, LOVE Wichita, gave several parishioners the opportunity to help out some of our very own, while Holy Savior Catholic Church also benefitted from the love and generosity of others on Saturday, April 28.

LOVE Wichita is a gathering of followers of Jesus united in prayer, service and outreach on behalf of the city, according to the project website.

At Holy Savior, the morning started with Mass celebrated by Fr. Billinger. Going to Mass gave the volunteers the opportunity to offer the day up to God. Along with parishioners, several young school teachers from the Catholic Diocese of Wichita joined in with the celebration and hard work. The freshly painted areas in the church parking lot, newly buffed gym floor, and carefully prepared garden were some of the jobs completed by these special volunteers.

Some of them started the day with Holy Savior parishioners at the home of Dorsie Cazenave, a Holy Savior parishioner. After this major deforestation project, which took a lot of hard work and cooperation, Ms. Dorsie was ready to enjoy her backyard with a bright smile and a cool refreshment.

After lunch and much needed rest, many of the workers headed over to the home of Mrs. Inez Pitts. Once again, everyone was willing to work hard and help out one of our special parishioners. As the day came to an end, a realization surfaced. We all felt a sense of accomplishment and a sense of joy knowing we shared in a heartwarming experience. Everyone agreed another day of work needs to be planned in order to get the job done! In order to complete Mrs. Pitts’ yard we need the help of many parishioners. Look for details on the website, e-mails, and in the bulletin.

The LOVE Wichita project will continue Saturday, May 6, when a group of volunteers from Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church plan to remove the outdated playground equipment on the church grounds.
