The Prayer Shawl Ministry deeply appreciates the wonderful thank you notes from those who have been comforted by their prayer shawl.  We continue to pray for you.


SHAWLS: Since the Holy Cross Prayer Shawl Ministry started in May of 2007, over 300 handmade shawls have been given to parishioners and friends in need of prayer and comfort.  Shawls are crafted with prayers and are blessed by Father Glen before they are presented.  If you know of someone (man, woman or child) who is in need of the warm comfort of prayer through a shawl, please contact the Church Office.


JOIN US: You are invited to join us - all skills are needed (crochet, knit, fleece tie, sewing labels).  We meet the last Tuesday of the Month at 6:30 PM in the Parish Library.  If you would like to work at home, just stop by a meeting to see the shawls and to get copies of prayers, patterns/ideas and size guidelines.  For more information, contact the Parish Office or Mary at 612-379-4090.
