Thank you to all the ladies of the Parish who have made close to 40 prayer shawls and lap-ghans for the new St. Mary’s Prayer Shawl Ministry. The shawls were blessed by Father Ledoux at the 4:00 PM Mass on Saturday May 4th. Anyone who is ill, hospitalized, home bound or facing serious illness may call the rectory to request a prayer shawl for themselves or a loved one. The shawl is a tangible sign of the prayers and support of the St. Mary’s Parish.
To become involved in this ministry help yourself to a Prayer Shawl brochure at the entrance to the church. Those who are not able to make a handmade shawl or lap-ghan may participate by donating yarn which can be left at the rectory. And of course, a cash donation for yarn is always appreciated!
Please join St. Mary’s in praying for our ill and aged brothers and sisters who will receive these shawls. And please also pray for the generous ladies who make this ministry possible.
