During the 2005-2006 school year, the fifth graders of St. Mary's School, learned to knit. For a service project they decided to knit prayer shawls for children. The child can wrap themselves up in the shawl and know that somebody knows their situation and wants to comfort them. These shawls will be given to patients and Children's Hospital in St. Paul and to other children in need in St. Croix County.
