Prayer Flags of Hope: Children’s Chapel Follow up from Feb 28

Author Sarah Ahrens, Written Mar 3, 2016

During Children’s Chapel on February 28 children had an opportunity to decorate some “prayer flags”- both in paper and felt.
While it is always nice to adorn our congregational walls and/or homes with such flags so that the sentiments imbued in the flag might permeate the space, these prayer flags are intended for a different venue- new homes in Nepal!

Long time friend of UUCSH Dr. Tulsi Maharjan is prominently involved in the Friends of Nepal NJ, a partner organization to the Homes of Hope Nepal program.  Homes of Hope is working to rebuild homes following the 2015 earthquake that rocked Nepal.

Moreover, there is a Flags of Hope program to compliment Homes of Hope.

Children and adults did a wonderful job creating the prayer flags that will soon be on their way to Nepal.  You may have seen/been among other UUCSHers at RVCC recently packing meals for this project too!
Financial contributions are most certainly welcomed for this important work.  See the website link for donation options.
