Prayer Shawl Ministry

This ministry is open to anyone who likes to knit or crochet and is interested in donating a little of their time to create shawls or lap blankets for those in need. If you do not knit or crochet and would like to learn, we will teach you. We have women in the ministry from beginner level to very experienced knitters.  Besides learning to knit and crochet, you will meet some wonderful ladies in the parish and make many new friends.

We would love to have you join us in this ministry to help others in need by donating a little of your time to wrap someone in the comfort of your prayers and love.

Everyone can benefit from wrapping themselves in a symbol of God’s love. All the shawls and lap blankets are blessed by a priest or deacon before being presented to the recipient.

Meetings:  Fridays, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall
