Shawl Ministry meets year-round to knit and crochet shawls, lap robes, baby blankets, newborn hats and sweaters, warm clothing for children in need, and hats and scarves for the military. Over 500 items are completed each year, and they are delivered to local charities including Hospice, Christ Child Society, Hibiscus House, Safe Space, St. Vincent de Paul and local nursing homes. Red-white-blue blankets are made for our veterans, and special items are made for active duty military personnel. Warm winter hats and scarves are sent to Native Americans in South Dakota and to needy children in Appalachia. Please join us at the chapel on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Please contact the office (772) 288-5194 for further information.
Each Friday in season from 10:00am till 1:00pm the Chapel host Mariner Sands Residents in the conference room who are home-bound and find it difficult to leave our premises. Activities include card games, bingo, and light exercises. This provides wonderful socialization as well as a break for caregivers.
This committee provides assistance to Mariner Sands Residents who need a hospital or home visit, as well as assistance with shopping and meals.
