New Prayer Shawl Ministry
Psalm 139:13-14 teaches us, “You created every part of me, knitting me in my Mother’s womb. For such handiwork, I praise you. Awesome this great wonder!”
Do you enjoy knitting or crocheting, or would you like to learn? Come and be a part of this new ministry at St Bridget Parish. Through the work of our hands and prayer we hope to spread Christ’s love by prayerfully creating shawls that will be given to someone who is in need of a tangible reminder of God’s love; the lonely, elderly, mourning, ill, or to celebrate a milestone such as a birth, Confirmation, or even going away to college. Shawls can be made using a variety of patterns for traditional knitting, crocheting, or even loom knitting and quilting. To create a shawl, usually 3 skeins of yarn is needed; even if you do not knit or crochet, donations of yarn would be greatly appreciated as we begin to form this new ministry at St Bridget parish.
For more information please contact Jen Markgraf at 267-495-7327.
Our first gathering will be Sunday, February 3 at 12:30 PM in St Brendan’s Meeting Room.
