Prayer Shawl Ministry

The St. John Paul the Great Prayer Shawl Ministry began in 2000 and meets in members homes once a month excluding December.  Our members knit shawls which are distributed to nursing homes, the cancer center and any individual who needs comforting. These shawls are always free of charge.  We also knit baby blankets which are given out to each child baptized in our parish. A specially designed card is included with each shawl and blanket given out. Approximately 40 shawls and baby blankets were distributed in 2018.

Call Joan Colangelo 860-482-6294 to get involved.
