Baptismal Robe Makers


This is a ministry of love, service, and labor.  The group gathers as needed to make infant baptismal gown kits.  The baptismal gown kits are given to the infant's parents to decorate for when the infant receives the Sacrament of Baptism in our parish.


The group is open to all adults in the parish who have skills related to the artistry of making small robes or garments.  Members of the group usually meet in the parish center, and as a team, they make the gown kits which are simple cut-out white garments.

If interested in assisting with this ministry contact Sally Furr at (815)625-5350.
