Creative Crafts and Conversation group meets every Monday evening from 6:00-7:30 p.m. presently via Zoom.
Until the Pandemic forced the closure of St. Patrick’s we met in the Shamrock Room. Since then, we have met via Zoom. Pat Blethen has been sending out the zoom link to anyone interested in attending. The group’s attendance varies from week to week and people come to share or work on a craft and/or to enjoy conversation. We continue to make prayer shawls, as well as work on our own individual projects.
The group is made up of St. Patrick’s members and folks from the surrounding communities. It is open to anyone. Since we have been meeting by Zoom, we have not had community members join us, even though we have made others aware of the link. The group has become a special time for many of us, especially in sharing thoughts and feelings about how the pandemic has impacted our lives and the lives of those around us.
This group is open to all, men and women, young and old, from St. Patrick’s or from around the neighborhood. We end with a prayer, when we give thanks for our creations and pray for guidance in these troubled times. If you would like to join us for all or part of the meeting, even if you do not want to work on a craft, but would like to socialize with us, we invite you to contact Pat Blethen at email@example.com for the link.
If you know someone who could use a healing prayer shawl, please let Lisa Chambers, Fr. Rick, or Dn. Peggy know. Happy Crafting! Respectfully submitted, The Rev. Deacon Peggy Day
