The Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish serves the parish family and the larger community by making and giving shawls as a gesture of love in times of sorrow and fear, as well as in times of joy. Shawls are given and received as a symbol of God’s all-encompassing love.
Join us in the Franciscan Center for our Thursday morning meetings.
I has been so rewarding to distribute over 2,000 “prayer squares” to our amazing nurses. The prayer squares have been so well received by our resilient, yet sometimes weary caregivers. Some nurses carry their prayer square in their uniform pocket, hang it in their locker, others inform me that after a while they passed it along to a patient or their own family member to offer support and caring in a time of need.– BethAnn, Parishioner and Nurse Leader at Hartford Hospital
