A baker’s dozen gathered in the basement of K-State’s Catholic center this morning — but it was blankets, not baking on the menu.

Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia along with students from Kansas State University and Cloud County Community College, plus faculty from St. Isidore’s Church, which includes the Catholic Campus Center, took part in the project to sew blankets for the Manhattan Homeless Shelter.
The project was spearheaded by Sister Beverly Carlin, the congregation’s vocation director who is based in Manhattan, and Sisters Julie Christensen and Betty Suther, both of Concordia. Sister Betty often leads the popular quilting retreats at Manna House of Prayer in Concordia.
The “quilting crew” cut fabric, sewed pieces together and quilted it all for extra warmth.
