Marika and members of the Seguin Sculptors Guild will work with the “kids of all ages” on an art tapestry/quilt.  The tapestry will represent the architectural beauty of downtown Seguin.  Prior to ArtsFest a number of local artists will add their interpretation of Seguin architecture to the tapestry.  The project for the kids of all ages will be to add accents and borders to the tapestry using a resin based material.

St. Brigid’s Cross- Chapel of the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center

The Guadalupe Regional Medical Center chose St. Brigid’s Cross for the chapel feeling that any chaplain would do well to model their ministry after the life of St. Brigid.  Much like St. Brigid, the chaplain often finds that the most sacred “chapel” is at the bedside of the sick and dying.  In those holy moments it is always the chaplain’s desire to bring love, peace and comfort through prayer and faith.  In the manner of St. Brigid, Chaplains often share God’s love by reaching out to the poor, to those in need and to those whose hearts are hurting.
