    Knitting Ministry - Luncheon

    April 27th, 12 Noon — 3:00 p.m.

    Location: Church Hall

    In recognition of the Ladies of this ministry a luncheon will be held to thank them for their continued dedication in knitting/crocteting their works of love and labor to help those in need for comfort.

    The mission of this ministry is to provide a prayerful environment for individuals to share their love of knitting and/or crocheting and to reach out to those in need of comfort with solace and prayers. The knitter and/or crocheter begins each prayer shawl/scarf/afghan with prayers and blessings for the recipient, and when the creation is completed it is blessed by the Priest before being presented to the recipient. Baptismal blankets are also created for all children baptized here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. All creations are free and available to all who request them. Knitting meets Tuesday mornings at 10:00 AM in the Church Hall. New Knitters are always welcome. Please contact the Parish Office if interested.

    "Shawls...made for centuries, universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover and give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles.
