Our SJN Prayer Shawl Ministry invites those who like to knit, crochet, or quilt to join us. We meet in the Abba room on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30. Members then make prayer shawls, quilts, or lap blankets for anyone who could use some warmth and some prayers.
As they work they pray for the person who will ultimately receive their prayer shawl. The finished prayer shawls are blessed at the quarterly Mass for the Anointing of the Sick, and they are given out to whoever would like one.
This is a beautiful expression of how St. John Neumann is indeed a praying community. Items that are not given out at Mass are given to patients in nursing homes, to women at Matt Talbot for Women, or to men at Fulton House or Procop House when they move out to permanent housing.
