A group of parishioners in our parish cut out and sew fleece prayer blankets, with appliqued crosses. These small soft blankets are then stored in the Gift Counter in Rose Hall. When anyone in the Parish hears of someone in our community who is in need of prayers, due to an accident, surgery, illness, or some other tragedy, they can choose a blanket and fill out the card to explain who it is for and why they need prayers. The blanket is then blessed by the Rector at the Sunday church service and every member lays their hand on the blanket as they go up for communion and says a prayer for that individual. The blankets are then delivered to the person standing in need of our prayers. There is no charge for a blanket. Marla Norris and Dannielle Goodrich are co-chairs for this ministry.
