This energetic circle sponsors a Faith Bracelet Beading Party.
As an ongoing fundraiser, the St. Margaret Mary circle voted to make beaded bracelets with a religious message. They made Faith Bracelets, each part of the bracelet has meaning:
the knot – birth
black bead – sin
red bead – Jesus’ blood
white bead – forgiveness
blue bead – baptism
green bead – spiritual growth
yellow bead – heaven
knot – judgment
clear bead – faith.
An explanation card is included with each bracelet. The bracelets are sold at the parish ministry fair and the parish gift shop.
As a bonus because this was a social activity and not a business meeting, they were able to welcome potential new members to participate in the activity.
What an interesting activity to incorporate member involvement with a fundraiser, social, and recruitment.
