Work of Mercy: Comfort the Sick
Covered in Prayer :Blanket Making
is the “blanket making” ministry of Church of the Ascension. We gather one time a month (on the 1st Thursday of the month) to make blankets, talk and generally enjoy each other while we sew. Bring your machine! You can come and just get material and take it home or you can learn how to make the blankets! We have people willing to teach you! We send over 150 blankets a year to our parishioners who are ill or hurting, along with friends and family members of parishioners, so we need LOTS of sewers!!!. You don’t have to be an expert sewer (they let me come!). If you are looking for a family or “kid friendly” activity, we also need flannel blankets that we supply to troubled youth in facilities around our Parish (Come to the Rosary at 6:30 first!!) We meet in the St Luke’s room!
Questions: or If someone you know could use a blanket, contact Jean in the office. We send the blanket and a note and people LOVE them!
Another way to share your knitting talents is to make little cradles for a ministry to parents who have miscarried: Bridget’s Cradle ! And we have donated yarn!
For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Join us for the Rosary and Sacrament of the Sick and “Blessing of the blankets” prior to our meeting, beginning at 6:30 in Church. Covered in Prayer meeting follows in the St Luke Room.
