Mission:  A prayer and crafting ministry dedicated to supporting our parish family and community by offering gifts of warmth, comfort, peace, celebration and strength.  Our crafted gifts of faith and love are offered in stewardship, service and friendship. 

Crafting in the form of:  

  • knitting, crocheting and sewing (lap blankets, shawls, slippers, baby booties, bibs, hats)
  • making rosaries

Gifts, Freely Given:  All crafted items are gifts of faith and love given freely and cannot be purchased. Each item is a blend of time, talent, and prayers offered in stewardship service by the crafter to the recipient 

Monthly Meeting: 

  • Location: Onsite and Virtual
  • Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours
  • Time: 4th Thursday of each month 11:00AM or 7:00PM


  • Individuals of any age or any skill level (male or female)
  • Crafters will need to provide their own crochet hooks, knitting needles, sewing machines, etc.

Gift Wrap & Delivery Team:  

  • Individuals to fold and tie the crafted items with a simple ribbon and attach crafter’s note card 
  • Individuals willing to deliver completed items

Target organizations/agencies:  

  • Servicing needs within our own parish and the local community (women and family shelter’s, shut-in’s, nursing homes, hospitals, etc.).

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Do I have to attend meetings?
    • No, parishioners can participate at home and donate their crafted items upon completion.
  2. How are in-person meetings different then virtual meetings?
    • In person meetings will be able to have a fellowship component that does not typically lend itself easily to virtual meetings.
  3. I really want to help but I don’t know how to knit or sew, what can I do to help?
    • There are many ways to help.  First, if you are willing to learn a new craft, reach out to our Ministry Leaders and they will connect you with a crafter who can help expand your skills! Second, consider participating as part of the gift wrap and delivery team.
