LORETO NOVITIATE EASTERN AFRICA PROVINCE – Activities during COVID-19 lockdown

Like many other parts of the world, we were put on lockdown due to COVID 19 pandemic in March this year. During this time, we decide to engage ourselves in various ways in order to make good use of the time but also to tap our different talents. This was an amazing journey. Some of the activities include: designing paper and ribbon decorations; beadwork and designing altar clothes e.g. Purificators. It has given us tremendous fulfillment. We have discovered some hidden talents as well as learning new skills which we definitely have come to appreciate. Some have even developed an interest in knitting sweaters.

Here is some of the beadwork and the paperwork

The altar clothes: purificators, corporals and finger towels.
