Prayer Shawl Ministry


 

The 'Soul Stitchers'  Prayer Shawl Ministry was started on September 15, 2015. It is a lively and dynamic group consisting of members from Our Lady of Sorrows and St Joseph's Churches. We gather every first and third Wednesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. in Murtha Hall at Our Lady of Sorrows to knit and crochet prayer shawls to comfort the sick, bring hope to those in despair, and to lift up the grieving. 

New prayer shawls will be blessed on first Sundays at the 8.30 AM Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows Church and on second Sundays at 10 AM Mass at St. Joseph's Church.

We are looking for additional members to share in our fellowship, fun, and creative endeavors. We enjoy coffee and conversation, prayer, and laughter. We invite all parishioners to discover a new craft as we have beginners to experts. We provide patterns, yarn, needles, hooks, and instruction. All are welcome! 

Please contact Pauline Veillette at 860 767 8519 or prayershawl@stocpct.org.
