Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Mission Statement for the Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. Patrick Church:

The Prayer Shawl Ministry gives handmade knitted or crocheted shawls to seriously sick parishioners of St. Patrick’s or their loved ones. Prayer shawls are also donated to cancer or seriously ill patients at a local hospital. The shawls are made and given in a spirit of love and prayer for the recipient’s good health or comfort. Through these corporal works of mercy, we offer our talents to God to solace the sick and infirm in their time of need.

For Further information call Parish Office 561-626-8626.
