For the last several years, Pat Douglas has been making prayer blankets for seriously ill parishioners at All Saints Catholic Church in Taylorsville.
She and fellow parishioner Penny Burns decided to start making the blankets about five or six years ago. They wanted to provide “something to give them comfort, so they know that someone is praying for them.”
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.
