A community of knitters and crocheters who meet once a month (first Friday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the Father Frisbee Hall and the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Saint Bridget Parish Hall to pray and create prayer shawls for those suffering in any way. These shawls "...wrap, enfold, comfort, covet, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify." (Bristow, 1998)
The ministry has also expanded to provide new mothers with a shawl at the time of their baby's baptism, a baby coverlet for the newly baptized baby as well as providing handmade scarves for those in need at the Pregnancy Care Center, Carolyn's Place in Waterbury. All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome to be a part of this ministry. Consider sharing your prayer time and creative talents with us.
