Our Threads of Faith group consists of many talented people who enjoy sewing and crafting. They use their talents as a way to bring comfort, joy, encouragement, and support through the creation of a variety of items. These have included masks, hospital gowns and pants, placemats for the holiday food baskets, pillow pals for children of domestic violence, fleece hats for the homeless and alterations of chasubles and stoles for the priests.
The group has also created a queen size quilt with matching pillow shams that served as a fund raiser for Catholic Daughters. The group is currently involved in creating cotton bags to be filled with personal need items (donated by parishioners) to be given to victims of domestic violence as these victims often have to leave home without these items. The request for donations is serving as a Lenten project for the parish. Threads of Faith functions as a spoke of the Circle of Love Wheel of the Catholic Daughters. The purpose is to improve the quality of life for all.
We welcome everyone to the Threads of Faith group. Being a member of the Catholic Daughters is not required. We would love to have many of you come and join us – there are tasks for everyone to do, no matter your skills. You may not only feel a sense of joy in serving others, you may also have fun along the way Can’t wait to see you.
