Did you know that on Mondays from 10 a.m. until 12 noon a group of St. Mary's ladies get together to enjoy a time of companionship, prayer and knitting or crocheting? The prayer shawls they create are given to people who are grieving or ill as a symbol that fellow parishioners are remembering them and praying for them. Come join us and get to know other creative and thoughtful people of your parish. Wool as well as knitting and crocheting needles are provided. Note: The group does not meet on holiday Mondays such as on Family Day.
