The goal of the Helping Hands Ministry is to provide comfort to those in distress due to medical, physical, emotional and financial circumstances. We do this through the age-old art of handwork. We make hats and socks for the homeless, prayer shawls for those who can use our prayers, blankets for children who simply need something to hold. These are just a few of the things that we create – at our meetings and on our own at home. The list is endless and the need great. If you can knit, crochet, sew, use a pair of scissors or would like to learn, we’d love to have your help. One of our volunteers will gladly teach you. We welcome helpers of all ages and we actively seek to connect our mature parishioners with any of our parishioners in middle school or older.
Helping Hands meets at the Center for Education and Ministry every Tuesday from 6-8 PM.
