New Ministry: Jeanne's Blankets

posted Mar 13, 2019, 7:39 AM by The Church of the Nativity

Jeanne Silvestri
“JEANNE’S BLANKETS” OUTREACH MINISTRY is being created in honor of Jeanne Silvestri, an amazing woman who lived a faith-filled life with kindness & love and had a unique ability to make everyone she met feel special & cared for.

Jeanne's Blanket ministry will be making lap-sized fleece blankets that will be given to adults and children who are sick or are going through extremely difficult times. These prayer blankets will be made, prayed over and blessed for healing and blessings upon the recipients. We pray that this ministry will bring all those who receive these prayer blankets comfort, peace and hope so they will know they are not alone, that God is with them and that there are people who care for them and are praying for God's healing hand to bless them.

We would like to form 2 separate groups. An adult group that will meet during the week and a Student group (6th grade and up) that will meet after school or on Saturday. No skill is necessary, just a prayerful and willing heart!

Interested? Please contact Sue H. at 732-741-1714 x20 or email: SueH@nativitychurchnj.org.

Please watch future bulletins for details on how to request a prayer blanket or if you would like to make a donation in honor of someone to help offset the cost of the blankets.

Unplanned Movie PosterPlease Come and See!


"UNPLANNED" will be released in theaters on March 29th. UNPLANNED is the inspiring true story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director, transformation from abortionist to an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement. 

It is so very important for this true story to be seen and heard by everyone. In our community, donors are renting entire theaters for multiple showings so that people can see what is really going on. This is not about judgement of anyone or any organization… its about LIFE. And our most important human responsibility to always protect it.
