Holy Cross - Mary's Mantle Prayer Shawl Ministry

  • Calling all Knitters and Crocheters...

    Mary’s Mantle meets on the 3rd Monday at 10:30am in Villano Hall (September - May).   The prayer shawl ministry is a blessing for those people in need and the ones that gather to knit or crochet.  The prayer shawls console those who are grieving, comfort those who are ill, and bring hope to those in despair.  Prayers are said for each person as the shawls are being made and then will be blessed.
    Everyone is invited to join the Mary’s Mantle group to make a difference in someone’s life by volunteering your time and loving, caring hands.  You do not have to attend the meetings to be a part of this ministry. You can make the shawls at home and bring to the office for distribution.
    If you have any questions, please contact the church office.

    Hang It On The 
    — Cross —
    If you have a secret sorrow,
    a burden or a loss,
    An aching need for healing...
    Hang It On The Cross.
    If worry steals your sleep
    and makes you turn and toss,
    If your heart is feeling heavy...
    Hang It On The Cross.
    Every obstacle to faith
    or doubt you come across,
    Every prayer unanswered...
    Hang It On The Cross.
    For Christ has borne our brokenness
    and dearly paid the cost.
    To turn our trials to triumph...
    Hang It On The Cross.
