Holy Sews Ministry: "Mending Hearts One Stitch at a Time"
Holy Sews Ministry is a compassionate response to the call to serve as God’s hands in the world, offering support and solace to families experiencing the perinatal death of a child. The ministry focuses on providing handmade infant burial clothing for families who lose a baby between gestational weeks 16-25. These infants are often too small for readily available clothing, and Holy Sews seeks to fill this gap by offering handmade layettes to affected families.
The layettes provided by Holy Sews consist of several components, each crafted with care and empathy:
- Small fleece blanket
- Hooded wrap with matching tunic
- Knitted cap
- Tiny teddy bear
- Prayer card, including space for baby information and footprint
Holy Sews supplies hospitals, funeral homes, or directly to families with a stack of layettes. Families can choose from these layettes at no cost, easing the burden during a difficult time.
The ministry welcomes volunteers interested in contributing their time and talent. Opportunities include:
- Material cutting
- Organizational support
