Prayer Shawl Knitting Ministry

Blanket those in our community
in Prayer, Healing and Love

Do you like to knit or crochet?
We use the craft of knitting/crocheting to create shawls for those in the community who might derive comfort, warmth, and spiritual sustenance from them. People such as the homebound, chronically ill, those experiencing a crisis, and a mom with a first baby are typical recipients. 

The Knitting Group meets on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Parish Library, located off the gathering space of the church. To get a broader perspective on what this is all about, visit:  

We attach this note: "Crocheted by hand and threaded with prayers of love and hope, this item is a gift to you.  May it bring blessings of comfort, gifts of warmth and the knowledge that you are loved.   - St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Prayer Shawl Ministry"
