Prayer Shawl Ministry Sends Love
Prayer Shawl Ministry Sends Love

Contributes the sick, homebound, St. Vincent dePaul & victims of CA fires.

Prayer Shawl Ministry at OLGC (PSM-OLGC) had a busy 2018 year. In addition to knitting and crocheting for the sick and homebound we have used our talents to raise funds of $1,500 for The St Vincent DePaul Society, to create a basket for the 2018 OLGC Auction and to donate the following knitted and crocheted items to the victims of the fires in California:

Hats – 8, Scarves – 8, Hat/Scarf sets – 3, Shawls – 4, Blankets – 15, Sweater – 1, Vest – 1

One of our members packaged and mailed these items to the local Catholic Church in California which coordinated the distribution those affected by the fires.

At this time, we have a surplus of hand-made items including shawls, lap blankets and children's items available to the Ministry of the Sick and Homebound and to parishioners in need. We attach not only a prayer based on St Francis de Sales' teachings but also a rosary made by the OLGC rosary makers to our handiwork.
