Prayer Shawl / Eat, Knit, Pray
We have been generating a bushel basket full of knitted or crocheted items for our own ministry of giving shawls to those facing a crisis (15 shawls), and for Crisis Pregnancy Center (4 baby blankets), as well as St. Pat’s Senior Center (3 lap blankets , and 10 hat/scarf combos) . We’d love to have your help in continuing our efforts! Our morning meetings will be moving to the second Thursday of each month, at 10:00 AM, and our evening gathering will continue to be held on the second Thursday at 7:00 PM. Please join us!
Know Someone in Crisis?
We have a special outreach ministry here at St. Mary’s. We are happy to help those individuals in need of comfort in a time of sorrow, illness, or struggle. We provide that support through prayer and blankets or shawls that are knitted, or crocheted, by members of our volunteer ministry. If you know of a parishioner, or their family member who’d benefit from this ministry, call Peggy Casing at 248-243-0251.
