Prayer Blanket Ministry
"Where two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them"
Established during the middle of the 2009 school year, Prayer Blanket Ministry consists of Saint Joseph High School students committed to making blankets and praying for all who receive one.
Prayer Blankets are an expression of care and concern for those who are challenged by a serious illness or tragedy. Blessed by a priest, they bring comfort and hope for true prayer seek God's will in all things; to share God's gifts, to treasure love and forgiveness, mercy and reconciliation.
Approximately 30 inches long by 18 inches wide, the blankets are made of fleece and are decorated with a cross representing the love of Christ and a heart representing the love and concern of the Saint Joseph High School family. Tucked inside the blanket are a prayer and an explanation of the blanket. A registry of names of recipients is kept in order to continue to remember in prayer all who have received one.
Prayer Blankets are available to members of our Saint Joseph Family; students and their families, including parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and to the faculty, staff, and alumni. They may be obtained in Room 123 before or after school. The blankets are free of charge, although anyone wishing to make a donation toward materials may do so.
Meetings are held every Tuesday after school in Room 123 from
3:15 - 4:15 p.m. New members are always welcome to join us.
