We meet once a month ( 2nd Thursday of each month) to create prayer shawls and lap robes. These shawls and lap robes may be given for any occasion, such as marriage, birth of a child, welcome to the family and other milestones as well as to those in need of comfort. In addition to being wrapped in a beautiful shawl, the recipients will most surely be wrapped in God's love as prayerful thoughts are woven into each stitch.
The next meeting of the St. Bernard's Prayer Shawl Ministry will be determined when we are advised by Father Rick regarding restrictions in place by Bishop Cote. We invite all those from both churches who enjoy knitting and/or crocheting to consider joining our Prayer Shawl Ministry. Please bring yarn, knitting needles (size 10 to 11), or a crochet hook, size H or I.
For more information, please call
(If there is no school in Vernon or a delay due to the weather, we will not have the meeting.)
