Prayer Shawl Ministry The Prayer Shawl Ministry meeting will be held on Friday, October 2nd Anyone interested in sharing their talents, creating shawls, is invited to gather at the Nativity Center from 10:00a.m. to 10:30 to drop off your handmade items and pick up yarn, needles and patterns. If you are wishing to knit/crochet as a group, the center opens at 9:30. You may continue working through the meeting and beyond. Blessing of the shawls/lap blankets will take place at the end of the 8:00a.m. Mass on Saturday, October 3rd. Fr. Abraham distributes these handmade items to the sick in hospitals, nursing homes and those on a request list. To receive a prayer shawl for a family member/friend, in need of prayers due to illness, contact Mary Ann Boylan (462-2504). Donations for this ministry are greatly appreciated and may be sent to St. Martin de Porres.
