At Holy Faith there are a myriad of opportunities to support each other, our friends and families through prayer. The following are some of the groups who meet regularly to support the prayer life of our church.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Begun in 2005, our ministry has knitted and gifted over 880 shawls to date. The shawls are free and we encourage the congregation to pick up a shawl from the cupboard in the Kinsolving room for anyone they know in need of extra prayers.

These shawls are knitted or crocheted prayerfully, then when completed, blessed at the altar and again by the Rosary group. We have recently begun meeting in the Kinsolving room the second Monday evening of each month and hope to continue to grow in membership and visibility within the church. We encourage you to join us.

Society of Mary

Our Lady of the Holy Faith and Consolation Ward of the Society of Mary meets every Monday at 9:30 am in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. Our group has met since 1996, using A Doorway to Silence: A Contemplative Use of the Rosary by the late Reverend Robert Llewelyn, an Anglican priest. We do not meet on national holidays, but all other Mondays find us in the Chapel for the contemplative praying of the Rosary.
