We meet once a month ( 2nd Thursday of each month) to create prayer shawls. These shawls may be given for any occasion, such as marriage, birth of a child, welcome to the family and other milestones as well as to those in need of comfort. In addition to being wrapped in a beautiful shawl, the recipients will most surely be wrapped in God's love as prayerful thoughts are woven into each stitch.
The next meeting of the St. Bernard's Prayer Shawl Ministry will be on Thursday, September 14th, from 9:30 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. in the church hall. We invite all those who enjoy knitting and/or crocheting to consider joining our Prayer Shawl Ministry. Please bring yarn, knitting needles (size 10 to 11), or a crochet hook, size H or I.
