Prayer Blanket Ministry

Prayer Blanket Ministry: The Women’s Club together with parish volunteers, sew prayer blankets to be given to anyone suffering from physical or emotional illness.  They also are given to anyone going through a hard time in their life.  Prayers are offered up for the blanket recipients as the blankets are being sewn.  The blankets are blessed by a priest or a deacon.  This ministry began in the summer of 2004 in honor of Holy Cross parishioner and former Woman of the Year, Gwen Stewart.  Since then , the Women’s  Club has provided around 900 blankets around the world to people in need of prayers.  We are in need of people to sew the blankets.
