KNITTING FOR A DIFFERENCE
Knitting for a Difference is a group of knitters and crocheters who make hats for anyone who is in need, such as; cancer patients, children in hospitals like St Jude’s or Mott’s Children’s Hospital, needy people who are found through Catholic Charities, The Salvation Army, Interfaith Shelter, and St.Vincent Du Paul. There is never a charge to receive these hats. Yarn is supplied to those who work on the hats by parishioners in the parish and the yarn is available to pick up at the parish. Hats are turned in at the parish then sorted and distributed to different organizations. People who work on hats work at their own pace. The church distributes over a 1000 hats per year. The group is always seeking people to make hats because the need is great. If you wish to be a part of this ministry contact Joyce Rochow at (517) 563-2861
RCIA begins Thursday, Sept. 7 at 6:30 PM. Please contact David Kemler for more information.
The Widow’s Group is open to all widows of St. Catherine’s and their friends who are widows, but are not members of our parish. The widows meet once a month, usually the last Tuesday of the month at a local restaurant. The group selects the restaurant. The purpose of the group is to get together and build relationships between the widows of our parish, to have lunch with good conversation, pray for each other, and discuss concerns that the group has about other widows of our parish and help them in any way they can. It might just be sending cards to a sick member or offering a ride. The group supports widows emotionally and they decided that they did not want to listen to speakers but rather just wanted to get together and share their love and support with one another. For more information or if you are in need of a ride, please call Joyce Rochow at (517) 563-2861.
The Widower’s Group meets the third Tuesday of the month after 9am Mass to offer support and comfort. All widower’s are welcome.
