Prayers and Squares Ministry

Prayers and Squares is an interfaith outreach ministry that provides comfort quilts to people undergoing hard times.  Each quilt is made by volunteers, then tied by members of a faith community as they say prayers for the recipient.  UCV recently became an official Prayers and Squares chapter, and we’ve launched this fundraiser to cover our operational expenses for the coming year.  Anyone can request a quilt, and each bears a label indicating that we’re sending prayers to a particular recipient (they’re always completely free of charge).  The program’s motto is “It’s not about the quilts; it’s about the prayers,” and these gifts represent UCV’s care and compassion, whether for our own members or those beyond our doors.  Contact the ministry’s coordinator, Anne DiPardo (dipardo.anne8@gmail.com; 319/331-1515) if you’d like to participate, request a quilt, or obtain one of the handmade items you see here.
