Prayer Blanket Ministry:

We are beginning the 4th year of this ministry.  We gather once a month to make fleece prayer blankets which are then blessed and offered to parishioners who may be experiencing an illness or a difficult time.  We will meet the first Wednesday of each month from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. in the lower level of the church Come once or come every month!  We are also looking for donations of fleece. If you can’t join us, perhaps you would consider donating fabric to this worthwhile ministry. For more information, please contact Veronica Hess at
