Knitting Ministry

Karen Gillotti, Chair, 203-885-9976,

Meets First and Third Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

The mission and purpose of the Knitting Ministry is to knit shawls for people who are sick, in rehab, or at home recuperating from illness or injury or going through a hard time to provide comfort, warmth and healing thoughts. We knit shawls for graduating seniors, a longstanding tradition, as a remembrance of UU when beginning their new phase in life. We knit a large variety of items for the Annual Holiday Boutique in December to raise funds for UU. We also give away a number of knitted items to charity, such as the Women’s Center, Dorothy Day Center, El Comida and others.
