Project Linus

We meet to sew twice a year = our next party is October 22, 2016 from 9-3 with lunch provided by Western & Southern Insurance.

On the sewing days we bring sewing machines, ironing boards, cutting boards and needles and thread and help out wherever needed and based on our talents. We also have kids sitting on the floor with moms or scout leaders tying the fleece blankets. If you go to the Project Linus web site you see lots of patterns and ideas. The rules for our chapter are simple: all of our blankets need to be new and homemade of the softest material and yarns; they need to be free of smoke, pet hair and perfume and most importantly made with love. The smallest size we will accept is 36×36. We serve children from infant to 18 years with most of our blankets going to shelters and hospitals. We are on track to donate close to 2,000 blankets this year.

When your blankets are finished we have a drop site at:   Faith@Work, 1977 E. Wattles, Troy.  Closed Sunday.   If you need more info please call me at 248-828-7511.

The parish of Holy Family was organized as the mother church of the Italian people in Detroit.  The first Italian family, the Lombards, came from a town near Milan in 1880.  At the turn of the century, a heavier influx came from southern Italy and Sicily and they founded the parish.  The church is 17th century Italian Baroque in style, a reminder of their native land.  The side altars reflect the predominantly Sicilian origins of the early parishioners; the one to the left of the high altar is dedicated to Our Lady of Trapani and the one to the right to Maria de Ferrasini.  The main altar, side altars, and the communion rail are of imported Carrar marble.

If you are interested in carpooling, please meet at our house around 10:30 am.   If you would like to participate in helping them in their outreach program – please bring a $10 gift card for groceries or gas.
