Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. John's Prayer Shawl Ministry

Welcome to our ministry - we are a group of both Parishioners AND Alden residents who like to knit, crochet, sew or quilt.  We meet once a week on Tuesdays from 9:00 - 11:00 am in the Art Room at St. John's School.  All our work is done with care, prayer and blessings for those in need.

Prayer Shawls and Lap Robes are our main focus and are given to someone in need of comfort and prayer.  In addition, we make hats, mittens and scarves.  All are given to our parishioners and local charities first and any additional are then given to nursing homes or other charitable organizations.

Our ministry also makes baby blankets which are part of the Baptism Gift Basket given at St. John's.

We are not funded by the parish, but rely on yarn donations and monetary gifts from generous parishioners, family and friends.

If you cannot meet with the group - but would like to participate by making items at home - we welcome you!

Please contact any one of these members if you have any questions: Diane Newman (937-6119); Darlene Dahl (937-4299) or Mary Lynn Hayes (863-3798).
