God has used this beautiful ministry to touch the lives of countless people who have received blankets while enduring a difficult time in their life. These prayer blankets will bring relief to the suffering and peace to the fearful. As one uses the blanket, they know they are not alone, that there are those who care about them and are praying for their healing. This beautiful act of sacrifice before the Lord truly transforms this blanket into a prayer blanket whose very threads become interwoven with pleas for healing on behalf of the recipient.
These blankets are taken to Mass and placed on the altar, where they are prayed over and blessed by a priest. Every person who receives a prayer blanket is lifted up in prayer. The prayer blanket is a symbol of a faith-sharing communities' covering of prayer for the individual who receives it.
A Prayer Blanket can be requested for an adult or child afflicted physically, emotionally or experiencing a difficult time in their life, by calling Joyce John at 724-437-7274 or the Parish Office.
