Upcoming Events  


We welcome all women!   

Our mission is to provide hope, comfort, and healing to those
who most need a reminder of God's love for them through
the work of our hands and the prayers of our hearts.

The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies our thoughts and
prayers for the receiver. It is a gift freely given with no strings attached. Made in
prayer, as prayer, for prayer, the shawls are passed on hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart.
Please join us if you are interested in knitting or crocheting shawls for those in need of
strength while undergoing medical procedures, in need of comfort after a loss, and in
need of peace and patience during an illness and recovery. If you don't have the time or
the inclination to actually make a shawl, please consider supporting us financially.
Donations to our ministry are gratefully accepted in whatever dollar amount you feel
comfortable in giving. These donations will allow our ministry to purchase more yarn and
continue the 'ripple effect' of unconditional love!

If you or someone you know needs a reminder of Gods love for them please contact
the parish office for a prayer shawl. It is our gift to you and those you love.

The Our Lady of Sorrows Novena has it roots in
Chicago and has spread world wide. In a vision, Jesus told the Blessed Veronica of Binasco, that He is more pleased in seeing His Mother filled with compassion than Himself I loved My Mother Mary with an immense love, the meditation on the torments which She endured at My death is even more agreeable to Me.¯

Join us on Tuesday mornings,
9:15 am
as we pray The Way of the Sorrowful Mother

All men of the parish and guests always welcome!
