Do you know people who are going through a difficult time in their lives? Offering a prayer shawl to them as a sign of love, comfort, and support may be just the thing they need to help them get through a crisis or give them the strength to carry on for a long time.
Members of St. Mark prayer shawl ministry have been knitting and crocheting shawls for 13 years as a labor of love and to show they care. These colorful, cozy shawls have been blessed and are available, at no cost, to anyone who requests one. Contact the parish office during business hours, or call Julie Zwiebel at 585-227-4208 evenings and weekends.
If you would like to help us make these shawls, the group meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 1-3 PM in the Parish Library. Feel free to drop in or call Julie for more information.
