There are many stages in the making of a quilt. Quilt top “kits” are
available for quilters to take and complete at home. The completed
tops are brought back to the workshop, which is scheduled twice a
month, on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays at 9 a.m.
at Lauerman Hall. These are then layered, bindings sewn on and
then taken home to have the “handwork” completed.
Our primary purpose is to foster prayer through the making of these
quilts and then reaching out to the sick and those in need of prayers
by way of a prayer quilt. After being requested, these quilts are
blessed at Mass and the Parishioners are invited to tie a double knot
while saying a quick prayer for the person the quilt is going to.
This is a gift of love that is given without charge. This Ministry at
OLG was started in March, 2006. The motivation to continue this
prayer-driven Ministry comes from the amazing responses of
healing, peace & comfort that we get back from the recipients.Come
and join us - we are always in need of volunteers. For more
