Prayer Shawl Ministry: The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets in the Narthex at Holy Family at 7 PM on the first Monday of the month. The next meeting is January 6th. The ministry is open to anyone who would like to learn how to knit or crochet or who already knits or crochets. Whether you knit or crochet quickly or slowly, your help is welcome to fulfill the mission of spreading God’s love through prayer shawls. Even if you can’t attend the meetings, shawls can be created in the comfort of your own home. Shawls are given to members of the congregation who are in need of comfort and prayers and to high school graduates. For more information contact Kristine Canter or the church office. admin@hfec.org
