Spiritual Works of Mercy

  • Come together to pray throughout the service for the people you will serve.

  • Pray the Rosary for the people you are helping.

  • Go to Mass together and offer your communion for the mothers and children who are in the shelter or who will receive the blankets.


Recommendations:

  • Plan ahead of who is going to represent the youth group in handing out the items?

  • Remember to take photos and share them on networks. Tag the organization, the parish, your group.

  • We invite you to use the #jornalerosministry too.



“See that you do not despise one of these little ones,* for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father." Mt. 18, 10


During your class session or group night:

  • See what the fabric requirements are on the different websites or ask before hand the organization you are planning to help. 

  • Invite participants to buy the material. They only need a yard of each fleece.

  • One piece of fabric will be with a baby print and the other with a solid color.

  • You complete this project using 15 minutes each time you meet until it is finished, or do it in one session.

  • Try to include spiritual works of mercy also.

  • Before starting, make sure that the place where you are going to put the fabrics on is clean.

  • If it is going to last more than one session, has bags of plastic for each blanket and a piece of masking tape to put the blanket creator's name on the bag.

  • Before starting, participants need to wash their hands. .

  • The blankets will most likely have to be washed before donating them. Ask about what kind of soap they need to be washed in.
