OUR LADY OF THE SACRED HEART

In celebrating for the Tet Festival, we were invited to hold a workshop at the local church for youth in a Vietnamese after school program. The church facilitated many games and provided us with the perfect space to partner with Bridge and the People and Places Project. Guests that participated in this FREE workshop turned shared their stories. Each person got the chance to draw a self portrait, or of someone they care about, and turn it into a plush toy to take home!
