Volunteer crafters in our community spend time knitting, crocheting, or weaving prayer shawls for people going through difficult times. While making their shawl, crafters pray for the person who will receive it. They bless the shawls when they are completed. The shawls serve as a real, tangible reminder of prayers being offered by the parish community for those who are struggling. While some crafters create these shawls with specific people in mind, many others create and pray over the shawls without knowing who will receive them. The volunteers aim to keep several shawls in the parish office to be given immediately to those in need.
