Archives Ministry brings warmth to babies

WATERTOWN – Newborns can leave the Samaritan Medical Center nursery a little better protected against the elements due to a generous donation from the Elizabeth Ministry Chapter at St. Patrick’s Church in Watertown.

“We found we had an oversupply of crocheted hats and booties in our cupboards,” Chapter President Kathleen Mastellon said. “We offered almost six dozen sets to Samaritan’s Center for Women and Children. They were happy to accept.”

Elizabeth Ministry International offers hope, help and healing to women of childbearing age on issues related to relationships, sexuality and childbearing.

The crocheted items and hundreds of other clothing and necessary items have been contributed to the chapter at the annual Baby Shower held in the parishes of St. Patrick and St. Anthony each fall.
