Prayer Shawl Ministry

The love of knitting and crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as for times of celebration.

Some uses for the shawl or blanket are: comfort for a loss or for undergoing medical procedures, commitment or marriage ceremonies, new baby, during illness and recovery. The shawls or blankets are made with ongoing prayers and when they are finished the group prays a blessing for the receiver.

If you are interested in joining the St. Rita’s group or just want to stop in and visit at a meeting, come to the Elderly Ministry office on a scheduled Saturday morning. We meet from 10:00am-11:30am.
