The ornament for St. Peter Claver is two hands and a cross. The lighter colored hand is giving the cross to the darker colored hand. This is a symbol of St. Peter giving the Catholic faith to the African people who were forced into slavery.
The ornament is made with white, peach/tan, medium brown and dark brown felt.
Cut out two hands: one medium brown and one preach/tan. Then cut out two strips from the dark brown felt to form the cross. Glue them onto the white felt square.
We used red, orange, and yellow permanent markers to add some color to the white felt.
This is now hanging on our liturgical tree.
St. Peter Claver, pray for us. May we understand each other and help each other grow closer to God even when we look and/or live differently.
