We are dedicated to the sick of our parish family through the prayerful construction of blankets, shawls, and rosaries.   All blankets and shawls are donated and accompanied by a bi-lingual packet of prayers, rosary, and religious medals.  We also gladly accept donations as each blanket costs between $15 & $20 to make and we make an average of 4 to 6 fleece blankets a month.


To pick up a blanket or shawl, please contact one of our priests or Gail during office hours. Please contact Sue Broderick if you need a blanket, or have any questions about the ministry.
We welcome you to join our Ministry and invite you to our meetings on the first and third Fridays of the month at 10 am.   Please see the bulletin for times/dates as the schedule is subject to change in case of holidays.
