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

Prayers and 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.

COVID-19 changes:  Unfortunately, our quilts cannot be tied by the community during the pandemic. Your requested quilt will be blessed by our clergy.  There will be prayer threads sewn into your quilt that you and others can tie. When your loved one receives it, we recommend their family and friends tie a knot and say a prayer.  When your quilt is ready, you will receive a telephone call with pickup instructions. Thank you for your cooperation.

Note: Before you request a quilt for another person, please make sure that you contact them to verify that they would like to receive a quilt and if they are willing to have their diagnosis shared publicly when we display their quilt for tying.
