Thank you Brown-RISD Catholic Community for spending Holy Week at Simple House DC! We had a great week of cooking, tie-dye, painting, and handing out Easter baskets!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday! Thanks again, LA Tech, Michaela, Patty, and Jake, for helping me make these candles for our friends in the ministry. Who knew re-purposing old, church candles could be such hard work?!
Three Thanksgiving thank yous! Thank you to our friends for using their fantastic baking skills to help us bake pies and for helping us deliver them! Thank you to the parishioners at St. Agnes Catholic Church for baking 178 pies for our families! Since we had so many, we were even able to share pies with the folks we met while walking through the neighborhoods we were visiting! And thank you to the students at the Friends Community School for adding festive decorations to all the pie boxes! Happy Thanksgiving!
Following in the trend of department store decorations and the Starbucks drink menu, A Simple House DC got into the Christmas spirit this past weekend! Thank you to our volunteers and friends from Capuchin College who peeled, stuck, tied, and glued with us. We made 150 nativity candles to bring the light of Christ to our neighbors this Christmas.
Thanks to everyone who helped with our Thanksgiving wreaths! Here are some pictures of the crafting crew and the finished products!
