Service Project idea:

Sacrifice beads for the Prison Ministry. Instructions on how to make Sacrifice beads in the video below. 

Please don’t add any metal rings or crosses—they can’t be used in prison ministry. This is an inexpensive project—I used hemp string, plastic pony beads, and larger wooden beads from Michael’s. These can be used as blessing beads, sacrifice beads or even a single decade of the rosary. You could have the kids make one for prison ministry and one to keep for themselves.
