Our Caring Crafters Continue to Make
A Difference In the Lives of Others
Our St. Faustina Caring Crafters Ministry would like to thank all the parishioners that supported us for the Holiday Market. It was a great success (even after being rained out for the Sunday’s 5:00 Mass) and the proceeds of $840.00 has been donated to the St. Faustina Building Fund.
Our members spend many hours and enjoy making these items to share with you, and please know that the proceeds will either go to the church or help us purchase the supplies we need to continue with our service goals. Remember that when we distribute these needed items to our other ministries, the homeless, the cancer centers or the pregnancy center, you have all been a part of it and helped make it all possible.
We feel so blessed and fortunate to have such a wonderful church staff and a supportive and generous parish family. We can’t thank you all enough!
For the next couple of months, we will be concentrating on making items for the homeless and pregnancy center to provide warm hats, scarves, mittens, and blankets to get them through the colder months.
We just made donations to these groups and distributed 25 Chemo Caps to the Cancer Center in December.
South Lake Pregnancy Center — 1 Hooded Cape, 3 Blankets, 2 Blankets with Hats, 4 Bibs, 4 Hats,
2 Sweater and Hat Sets, 1 Sweater, 1 Hat and Bootie Set, 3 Sets of Mitts, 1 Hooded Bib, 1 Onzie
2 Crocheted Dress and Hat, 6 Christmas Hats, 6 Premy Hats, 5 Premy Hats with Blankets Sets
Well of Hope — 28 Hats, 10 Blankets, 6 Scarves, 2 Scarves with hats set, 6 Headbands, 1 Mittens
The Caring Crafters Ministry meets the second Wednesday of the month from 10:00 am until noon in the church classroom.
Caring Crafters Ministry
St. Faustina Catholic Church
The Caring Crafters Ministry was established on April 27, 2023. We are crafters that gather together each month to use our talents in sewing, crocheting, knitting and paper crafting to make items through our church and community that show we care and want to serve and comfort those in need.
Currently we are assisting the Bereavement/Consolation Ministry by making our crocheted or knitted prayer shawls for them to distribute to those who are mourning the loss of a loved one; and for the Ministry to the sick and homebound we make lap blankets for them to distribute to those who are suffering pain because of an illness or injury, or feeling sad, lonely or helpless. We pray as we make these shawls and blankets so that the recipient may be comforted by these handmade items to help strengthen and restore them and know they are not alone when they use them.
We are helping our community by crocheting, knitting and sewing baby items such as blankets, bibs, receiving blankets, sweaters, hats and booties for the South Lake Pregnancy Center. We also make blankets, scarves, and hats for the homeless for their use during the colder months. More projects to come as we grow.
We are a very busy ministry and while our members are socializing, sharing ideas, and enjoying working on their projects or learning new ones, we are also serving and helping others wherever we can. Even if you don’t crochet, knit, sew or paper craft, you can come and learn to do any of these fun crafts and be rewarded by serving others with your creations. We have very talented ladies who are willing to teach and share their knowledge with you.
Come join us!
