Prayer Blankets are sewn with love and prayers for those who receive the blanket.
This Prayer Blanket is a symbol of a fail sharing community "covering with prayer the indivudual who receives it." The blankets are made and donated by members of St. Albert's parish. The blankets include a prayer card with a prayer for healing and comfort. The completed blankets are then blessed by Father. The names of those receiving a blanket are listed in the adoration chapel with a request to be remembered in prayer.
The Prayer Blanket brings comfort to the suffering and peace to the fearful. When one sees and touches these blankets, they know they are covered in prayer and there are those who do care about them.
God has used ths beautiful ministry not only to touch the lives of countless people who have received the Prayer Blankets while they are going through extreemly difficult times in their lives, but the lives of those involved in the ministry as well. We are blessed to have som many people who give abundantly of their time, talents, and treasures, making Prayer Blankets possible. As a parish family, remember those who have been given a blanket in the Prayers to the Faithful at every Mass.
So I say to you: "Ask and it will be given to you, search and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you, for everyone who asks receives, everyone who seeks finds, everyone who knocks will have the door opened." ~(Luke 10:9-10).
