To maintain a family outreach network of support to the parishioners of St. Teresa’s
All this in the name of Jesus Christ and the Prayer Shawl Ministry of St. Teresa’s Parish.
"Shawls...made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beatify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles..."

The St. Teresa's Prayer Shawl Ministry is in full force with hundreds of prayer shawls distributed already. You can deliver your completed prayer shawls to the rectory at 1634 Victory Boulevard .
The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets every first Wednesday of the month at 6:00p.m.
and every Third Tuesday of the Month at 10:30a.m.
at the Blessed John XXIII Pastoral Center at 115 Windsor Rd.
The Fourth Sunday of every month at the 9:00 AM mass the shawls will be blessed. We ask you to come to the front pews and join us in the blessing of the shawls. They are then distributed as needed. Please help us whether you knit, crochet or pray, you will be helping others.
These Shawls are made for sad times or happy times. If you'd like to participate, you can knit alone at home or in groups.
