Prayer Shawl Ministry
St. Anthony’s Prayer Shawl Ministry was formed as a result of the love of knitting/crocheting and compassion for others. Its members gather once a month in friendship and prayer to knit or crochet shawls. The work in progress is taken home where the labour of love continues. Upon completion, the Shawls are Blessed by Father Monte during the monthly Friday night “Touched by Cancer” Mass and are offered as gifts to those in need of comfort, encouragement or sympathy. They are also given to celebrate joyous occasions. To-date approximately 500 Prayer Shawls have been made, blessed and comforted not only persons locally but across Canada and to other countries.
New members are most welcome! If you do not know how to knit, we will gladly teach you.
Meeting times are the second Tuesday of every month in the Rectory beginning at 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
For more information, call Lucille Aube at 455-1511 or Irene in the Parish Office 444-6010.
Donations of balls of yarn or monetary donations to buy yarn are graciously accepted by the members.
