Labors of Love Ministry, formerly the Prayer Shawl Ministry, consists of a group of people who want to put their talents to good use for the glory of God! We crochet and knit useful items for those who are in need or those who just need a comforting touch. Also, crochet mats for the homeless out of plastic grocery bags. You don’t have to know how to knit or crochet, we also make items from fleece (ie: blankets, hats), and mission rosaries. We welcome and encourage anyone to join us.
