Our Prayer Shawl Ministry meets on the first Thursday of every month at 10 A.M.  We have a wonderful group of ladies who offer their handiwork for gifts to comfort those who are in physical or spiritual distress.  A former parishioner, Bob DeSpirito, who retired to Italy with his wife, Roseann, makes shawls during the winter months.  He sent a picture of the shawls that he made and I said that we would have to make him an honorary member of the Prayer Shawl Ministry.  He then suggested that he would send us a shawl once in a while for parishioners here.  So this is amazing news.  Our Prayer Shawl Ministry goes International — shawls sent from Sessa, Italy.  Imagine that.  Thank you, Bob.
