Saint Paulís makes quilts for orphans

CLEARWATER Ė Last year, Saint Paulís School students participated in the St. Peterís Love Quilt Global World Awareness Project.

This project provides handmade quilts to orphans in South Africa. Each quilt incorporates art squares filled with messages of love drawn by children. The process of making the art squares and quilts helps teach the importance of compassion. The quilts are gifts of love, warmth, and support to children in need.

Marcie Berthold, Saint Paulís art teacher; and Marilyn Swan, music teacher, teamed up to introduce this project to Saint Paulís students in the fall of 2011. Since then the students have continued to create beautiful messages and art that will be given to special South African orphans.

On March 15, at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter in St. Petersburg, the art squares that the students created last year were on display in the finished quilt. The exhibit included a presentation on the quilts and the history of the project.

The Saint Paulís quilts will be given to the orphan children in South Africa this coming summer. Teachers are already scheduling for students to create more squares for the next quilt they will send to Africa next summer.
