St. Edward School - Jeffersontown, KY
As a way of helping others, St. Edward School has been supporting American troops in Iraq for a very long time. Recently they continued their support by giving solace to children whose parents are serving in Iraq. The students, faculty, and parishioners of St. Edward got together on 11/2/07 to create prayer pillows.
A parishioner helps children stuff the pillows which are about 6x6 inches. Young people at St. Edward placed a small heart in each pillow.
Before placing the heart in the pillow, the children said a prayer for the soldier and his or her family. These PeaceBuddies (one older and one younger student) are happy to show their pillow and proud to support the troops.
These PeaceBuddies worked side by side to create prayer pillows.
Parishioners and children together created over 900 pillows!
A proud child displays the prayer pillow she made.
After making the pillows, younger children were asked to write or draw about how working on this project has made a difference.
Along with troops in Iraq, prayer pillows were also sent to veterans of the Vietnam War and to parishioners in nursing homes.

Month after month, year after year, the staff, students, and community of St. Edward spread peace by sending care packages, cards, and other helpful, hopeful items to soldiers in Iraq and to their families here in the United States. They also continue to support American veterans in their community. We are always impressed and inspired by their creative ideas and by their ongoing devotion.

Helping others is not a quaint idea or an occasional activity at this PeaceBuilders site—it is part of their daily and weekly agenda. It is their way of life. St. Edward School is a proud PeaceBuilders site.
