If you enjoy knitting or crocheting, consider joining the St. Mark’s Knitters Guild.
The Guild was formed in September 2005 as a prayer shawl ministry. While members knit or crochet beautiful shawls, they pray for the recipients. The shawls are then blessed at the altar during a worship service, and are given to parishioners who have a serious illness or death in the family.
Since its beginning, the ministry has given more than 40 prayer shawls, thereby knitting our parishioners together in a very tangible way.
The 25 women currently in the Guild meet on the first Monday of each month at 1 p.m. in the Parish Hall parlor, but members don’t have to attend these meetings to belong to the group.
This ministry is a joy for those who knit and pray, as well as those who receive the shawls and other items.
