Are you a knitter looking for a project?
Christ Church Deer Park has formed a Prayer Shawl Ministry. Hand-knitted shawls have become an international cause in the ecumenical community - given as a symbol of peace, comfort, and the prayers of the community to those who are sick at home, hospital or in a seniors’ residence. We have seen how much they have been appreciated. Shawls can be simple or elaborate. All knitters, women or men who would like to contribute to this initiative, please contact Norma Ross (416-929-5494). She will be pleased to provide patterns.
