Knitting Project - Over the last few months, the Parish has received

several donations of knitting or  crochet yarn and a number of Parish

members and friends have started making items for our local chapter

of the American Red Cross Service  to the Armed Forces. These items will go to the local veterans hospital and home, as well as gifts for baby showers for pregnant service women. It's become an opportunity for some members of our Parish to learn new skills or to refresh old ones and all have enjoyed trying new patterns and techniques. Take a look at some of the first items completed (above). Have unused yarn or knitting/crochet tools in your attic you'd like to donate? Want to join in the fun? Contact us for more information.
