“It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”

Prayers & Squares is an outreach ministry that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt. Many hands come together to create these lovingly made quilts, including members of the parish whom are periodically invited to bind a tie and say a prayer for the person it will ultimately comfort.

These prayers are an affirmation of our faith in God and our belief in His power to comfort, strengthen and heal. Anyone in special need of prayer is an appropriate recipient of a prayer quilt.

Recently members of the Prayers & Squares Ministry presented the prayer quilt designed specifically for the Chabad of Poway. It was graciously received by the wife of Rabbi Mendel who said they have had an outpouring of love for their community. Her comments were all focused on the positive effects that this tragedy has engendered. She was very appreciative of all of the parishioners who tied knots and offered prayers for them. Thank you all for being a part of this important and touching gift.
