Shawl Ministry

Volunteers knit or crochet a shawl for persons who are dealing with illness, undergoing medical treatment, death of a loved one, divorce….  It could be given for a marriage, anniversary, birth or adoption of a baby.  Caps are also knit or crocheted for infants being Baptized.  As the shawl or cap is created, prayers are said for the person who will receive it.  When completed, shawls and caps are brought to a monthly meetings and each minister prays over the shawl.  Fr. Tim then blesses them.  Members of the parish Pastoral Team distribute the shawls and caps to the appropriate recipients.  For more information, please contact the Parish Office.
