Blankets and Squares

For those who are visited – we find the gift of a prayer square brings comfort and an awareness of community.

For those who are baptized – the gift of a baptism blanket brings an awareness of their belonging to a community and is a physical momento of this ancient tradition.  

For those who knit or crochet these gifts there is a sense of service and of community in creating squares or blankets:  love and compassion in action.
