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.

Sign Up Weekend!

Volunteering gives you the opportunity to change people’s lives – including your own.  It is a mandate from your baptismal call.  If you are feeling frustrated or overwhelmed by life, giving of yourself can be a great way to cope and put things into perspective.  To be a good steward of the gifts God has given you, it is necessary that you ‘give back’ by way of your time and talent.

  1.  Begin with prayer
  2. Find what fits your schedule
  3. Expand your mind and soul

Please pick up a Ministry Opportunities Booklet at Mass or in the Parish Office.

After prayerfully reflecting where God is calling you to serve, please fill out the sign-up sheets during Mass this weekend, Sept. 24th and 25th,  and help St. Anastasia bring forth the kingdom of God!

We hope you’ll join us.
