Comfort Shawl Ministry

This group knits and crochets shawls and lap blankets while praying for ill parishioners and general public, nursing home residents and residents of St. Ann’s Community Palliative Care Unit. The group joins in prayer and support of the community and each other. Yarn is donated or purchased by members.

We knit and crochet small lap blankets (25” by 12”) and larger shawls (57’ by 22”). Experienced or newbees welcome. Patterns are available and members are happy to teach. Prayer cards with the name of the knitter / crosheter are attached to finished shawls and blankets and given to those in need as a source of comfort and love.

New members or requests for shawls & blankets are always welcome.

This group meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 1:30 to 3:00 from Sept. through June at the Parish Center at St. Thomas the Apostle, 4536 St. Paul Blvd.
