Friends of Chaplain Partnership

Our auxiliary, Friends of Chaplain Partnership, will soon celebrate their 70th year of service to our ministry. During this time, our Friends have handmade literally tens of thousands of items for our chaplains’ use in their ministries, including: outfits for premature infant burials, lap robes, prayer shawls, saddle bags for walkers, hats for adults and infants (some of which are small enough to fit on a golf ball!), quilts and “fidget” blankets for patients suffering from dementia. Each item is lovingly handmade and distributed free of charge to those in need.
Chaplain Partnership would like to thank our Friends for their kindness and generosity towards our chaplains and their patients. Your actions are a living, breathing act of love.
If you’d like to learn more about our Friends, and how to participate in their activities, give us a call at (440) 455-9001!
