Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church

Prayer Quilt

Mission: The OLGC Prayer Quilt Ministry provides an opportunity for parishioners, as a community, to pray for each other and for family and friends who are seriously in need of God’s healing Grace.

We gather for more than just sewing pieces of fabric together. As we construct our quilts, whether at meetings or at home, we open our hearts to hear God’s word throughout the entire process…from fabric selection to the final knot and presentation on the altar. We also come for fellowship, for education, and for the love we share for those in need. The ministry began in January of 2008 and, as of July of 2020, we have honored requests for more than 350 prayer quilts.

All are welcome to join us. We are not looking for expert seamstresses or quilters (although they are most welcome!). We are looking for those that have heard God’s call to minister in some way and wish to see what we are about. No sewing skills are needed; however, if anyone wishes to learn, instruction will be provided. There are also many non-sewing components to this ministry. Work can be done at home if anyone is unable to join us for the Tuesday meetings.

The process to request and receive a prayer quilt is simple. Any parishioner can request a quilt after getting written or oral permission from the person who is to receive the quilt. Arrangements for the quilt to be picked up will be made at the time of the request. The length of time to fulfill a request depends on the number of requests, the number of finished quilts on hand, and many other factors.

All meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month. If you would like to visit one of our meetings, are interested in joining, or would like to request a prayer quilt, please contact:
