St. Stephen has a new ministry. We make fleece blankets for those who are seriously ill, injured, confined to either home, hospital or nursing home. They are made prayerfully, blessed and given to express caring and concern from St. Stephen Catholic Community for our parishioners, their immediate family members or their close friends. The following prayer is sewn on each blanket: “May the Risen Christ bless you with HOPE, COURAGE, and PEACE. St. Stephen Catholic Community holds you in prayer and covers you with love.” If you know of someone who would benefit from receiving a Prayer Blanket, call or email Lorine Bourland 615-754-6899 email@example.com; Elaine Bustillos 615-758-8303 firstname.lastname@example.org; Joyce Davis 615-754-6899 Joyce_davis07@comcast.net; Bettyann Tompson 615-883-3422 email@example.com; or Janet Youmans 615-525-3920 firstname.lastname@example.org.
