SHARE A YARN would like to invite parishioners who knit and crochet to join them in this year’s annual Parish-wide Knit/Crochet Along. We will be making 6 inch squares that will be made into baby blankets for the Ladies of Charity of the Buffalo Diocese and afghans for local veterans and others in need. Use any color yarn you may have, any stitch, and it can be knitted or crocheted. Leave completed squares in the baskets at the back of the church between now and Easter. Thank you for helping us help others.
