The prayer shawls and baptismal blankets that Father John blessed at Mass recently were made with love and prayer by our WIGL group. The WIGL group consists of women of the parish of all ages who meet once a month. The prayer shawls and baptismal blankets are either knitted or crocheted. We give a baptismal blanket to a newly baptized child of the parish at the time of baptism. The prayer shawls are given to any person who may have suffered a loss or is dealing with illness. The symbol of the shawl is that when the person uses the shawl they are wrapped in the prayers of the group. If you know of someone who may be in need of a shawl and prayers, please call Nancy at (716) 474-2992. Referrals are kept confidential.
