Prayer Shawl Crochet Lessons- Many people have mentioned they would love to join our Prayer Shawl Ministry, but they don't know how to crochet. Here's your chance to learn- We have a member who would be happy to teach you!! Most people can pick up the skills needed in just a few sessions. Please call or email Christine Stephens at 761-7243, email@example.com if interested. Have fun, be creative, and do something that helps others - all at the same time!
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY- The Prayer Shawl Ministry gives, not sells, handmade shawls and lap blankets to those who are sick, elderly, or in need of comfort and warmth. The recipients are so grateful to be given beautiful and warm shawls and blankets. All shawls and lap blankets are blessed by Father Phil or Father Nana, and each creation has a miraculous medal attached to it, along with a special prayer card. The shawls and blankets are boxed and tied with a ribbon, to be given as gifts to those in need. Since shawls are never sold, donations of yarn or money (to be left at the rectory) to buy yarn are deeply appreciated.
New members are always welcome! If you don't like to attend meetings, no problem, just crochet or knit from home. Would you like to join, but you don't know how to crochet? We have a member who will be happy to teach you! .
