Prayer Line

Hold the intentions of our parish community in your own personal prayer.  You will be contacted daily with requests made by parishioners for healing, hope, and community support.  Commitment is to check email or phone daily and to daily prayer.  You may be contacted by email or phone.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Gather together to knit or crochet concrete symbols of love and prayer to give to members of our community.  This group creates shawls and lap blankets to give to those in the hospital or homebound.  Knitters meet the second Wednesday of every month at 5:30 pm in the Gathering Area.  Mentoring and instruction is available.
