We started this ministry in November of 2020. To date, we have completed more than 700 pocket prayer quilts that have been distributed to our parishioners, neighborhood senior care homes, VA Medical Center, etc. We enclose the following message when we distribute the quilts.
May God grant you faith and hope
throughout life’s journey.
Know that you are in our prayers!
Blessings from Saint Leonard Catholic Parish.
We currently have more than a dozen people involved in this ministry but would love to increase our team. If you like to sew, we invite you to join our team! If you do not sew but would still like to be involved, there are several other ways to help, such as assembling the fabric for sewing, delivering materials to our team members, attaching the prayer to the quilt with a safety pin, etc. The work can be done at home and we will deliver the materials and instructions to you. Call the parish office at 502-897-2595 to volunteer, and we will find a way that you can help!
