Faith Church makes masks

Faith Church's Prayer Quilt and Shawl Ministry team is committed to making fabric masks for Faith family and friends and our wider community to help slow the spread of COVID-19.


Remember: My mask protects you, your mask protects me.

Tell me more

Partnering with other sewing groups and individuals from Runville United Methodist Church and St. John's Catholic Church, we've distributed over 3300 masks to individuals and businesses in Centre County at no charge.


Additional masks are being made for children and for the Daycare and Playschool at Faith Church as they make preparations to reopen when they can do so.


In appreciation for all the donations we have received, the PQ&SM has donated $400 to Centre County's free lunch program through the YMCA.

How to wear and care for your fabric mask

Wearing your mask:

  • Choose a side and always wear the same side against your face
  • Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face, covering your mouth and nose
  • The more snugly your mask fits against your nose, the less problems you may have with glasses fogging
  • When you remove your mask, don't touch the front of it and wash your hands afterwards


Cleaning your mask:

  • You should clean your mask if you wore it for more than 4 hours or if it is damp
  • Masks are washable; machine wash or hand wash with detergent
  • Masks can be air-dried or machine-dried on high heat
  • You can sanitize your mask by ironing it (with or without steam)
