  • For the last several years, Pat Douglas has been making prayer blankets for seriously ill parishioners at All Saints Catholic Church in Taylorsville.

    The blankets are child’s sized with a pocket in the center. The pocket contains a prayer book and a rosary, and originally was printed with a prayer from the church.
