Threads of Comfort and Joy
Threads of Comfort and Joy brings together the shared experience of creating a special gift to be given and fostering a spiritual practice during its creation.
The Cathedral’s Prayer Shawl ministry has a long history of prayerfully creating shawls and baby blankets for Cathedral members who are challenged by illness or celebrating the birth of a child. In this new chapter of the ministry we will continue and grow these two areas and add more opportunity for handmade items to be shared with Cathedral members and those in the greater community. Crocheted crosses and angels recently were given to those who came to the All Souls Day of Reflection, and newly baptised children will receive a knitted teddy bear.
All levels of experience are welcome. We will do our best to help you learn how to knit or crochet via Zoom. As soon as we can gather in person, we’ll offer more hands on lessons.
