Knitting for Peace

Cathy Grogan has been offering a knitting circle at Cecilian Center for Earth, Arts and Spirit in Mt. Airy for the past two years. She gathers with those who also love to knit or crochet to make prayer shawls, lap afghans, chemo caps, or other garments for those who are ill. The Center for Spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph, asked Cathy if her group would make prayer shawls for the rooms in the retreat center. When the retreatant comes to pray, she knows the shawl was lovingly made by people who also prayed over their work in making the shawl. This has become a contemplative practice for the women who knit or crochet. We are looking for more people to join the group.
Cathy Grogan is an accomplished knitter and is willing to teach those who need a lesson.
