Praying with hearts and hands retreat

Friday, May 13 at 4:00 PM to Saturday, May 14 at 12:00 PM

Join the Holy Knitters Prayer-Shawl Ministry at the Marie Joseph Spiritual Center in Biddeford as they joyfully share in the care of God’s people by using the gifts of their hands to knit or crochet sacred prayer shawls.  Prayers and blessings are woven into the shawls, which are then given to people for comfort, healing, or in celebration. This program will be led by Connie Bartelson and Jayne Romanek.

Arrival for this retreat is 4 p.m. on Friday with an evening meal at 5:30 p.m. The program begins at 7 p.m. and concludes with a noon meal on Sunday. The cost is $260 for a private room.

Basic knitting or crocheting skills are a prerequisite for this retreat. A list of required materials will be sent upon registration.
