The Parish Nurses and the Welcome Team are partnering up with a new ministry to welcome new born babies into the parish.
If you like fabric, you can peruse the fabric stores and pick out one yard fabric pieces to donate to this project.
If you can sew a more or less straight seam, you can hem them!
If you know someone who has had a baby recently or is about to have one--let us know!
If you have an embroidery machine, you can embroider cute pictures (we make them both with and without the embroidery).
We are exploring what options there are for either home made labels or factory made ones to welcome these little ones into our parish.
Nurses or Welcome team members (or you!) will bring the blankets to the new parents and baby to welcome them to the parish and make themselves (yourself) available for questions, health and development tips, etc.
Come and join us!
