Based on scripture, Acts 19:12, where Paul healed using cloths, the Prayer Cover Ministry began at St. Pius X Catholic parish in the year 2000 to provide a “covering of prayer” to those who need to know they are loved and to bring people closer to God through individual prayer. Making the covers involves shopping for material, washing, coordinating fabric, cutting and sewing while praying for the recipient After the covers are completed, and tagged, they are taken to the Healing Mass and placed on the altar where they are blessed by the priest. Those who are to receive the covers are also held in prayer. These loving acts truly transforms the cover into a “Prayer Cover”. It invokes a desire for healing and a knowing that it was made of prayer and for prayer. As each individual is unique, so each Prayer Cover is unique. No two hold the same size, time, problems, beauty, love, or prayers.
Special orders are available upon request. Donations of fabric, thread, and money enable the ministry to fill the demand. The Holy Spirit is the CEO.
Since the ministry has grown so fast, we are in need of more people to pray and sew these covers. Donations of fabric and thread and money have enabled us to fill the demand.
To “Love One Another” is St. Pius X’s calling. May all who receive the “Prayer Covers” be called to “Love One Another” and be joyful in praising God for all things.
