Did you know?

As of the end of October 2021, the Prayer Shawl Ministry has  given away over 3000 prayer shawls. These shawls provide warmth and comfort to families in need.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is beginning it's 17th year.  This Ministry meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 1:30 PM in the Gathering Room. (Due to COVID-19, we ask that everyone wear a mask for the safety & protection of each other.)

Members use their time, treasure and talents to prayerfully create shawls to be given out and used as a reminder of God’s love for that person. This fulfills Christ's teachings to comfort the sick, comfort those who mourn, prayer and compassion for those in need. “Where two or more are gathered together…”.

 

Shawls can also be made at home and donated to the Prayer Shawl Ministry.
 

The Prayer Shawl Ministry works to :

  • provide shawls for anyone who needs one.

  • encourages people to offer their talents to make additional shawls prayerfully.



Below is the schedule of dates for our meetings and the blessings on the following weekend. NOTE: Our meeting times are 1:30 – 3:00 PM in the Gathering Room. Whenever there is a funeral luncheon, the meeting will be in Room S9 in the Parish Center.

Shawls will be available to be given out at the Mass when they are blessed.
