This ministry is for anyone in the parish, and their family members and friends, who are in need of prayer and comfort: someone suffering from a serious illness or the death of a spouse, someone who suffers from depression or addiction, or anyone in need of prayer. In these times of anxiety and suffering, the gift of a prayer blanket assures them that they are covered in prayer by the faith community of Our Lady of Lourdes. Each blanket is sewn by a member of the parish, blessed by our priest for the person in need, and includes special prayers and a letter of encouragement. These blessed blankets are a gift of the parish. For more information or to join this ministry, call the ministry coordinator, Judy Cabaniss, firstname.lastname@example.org, 919-848-1898.
