The Daughters at St. Mary’s maintain a prayer blanket ministry for those within our parish and community. Regularly, we gather together to craft handmade blankets, and then pray over those blankets for healing and comfort for those whom the blankets will be gifted to. Our priest, Fr. Peter Helman, then blesses the blankets before they go out into the community. In the past, we have held parish-wide crafting days for blankets that were given to those who are staying at St. Agnes’ House, a hospitality ministry of the Diocese of Lexington, and for senior citizens who are a part of the parish’s annual Christmas Box Project.
If you know of someone in the local community who could benefit from this ministry, please be in touch with any of the Daughters at St. Mary’s.
