Prayer Shawl Ministry

This ministry is a group of Faith filled parishioners bringing God’s love and comfort to those in need, with handcrafted Prayer Shawls.

The purpose of this ministry is to freely give a Prayer Shawl to the recipient with no strings attached. Putting a price on a shawl defeats the purpose of this ministry.

The maker of the shawl begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. Prayers are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Many blessings are knitted or crocheted into every shawl. When the shawl is completed it is offered a final blessing before being gifted to the recipient.

Possible reasons for receiving a shawl:
Needing comfort and prayer, undergoing medical procedures, as a comfort after a loss, during bereavement, during an illness and recovery, or during a terminal illness. There are endless possibilities!

This ministry is open to all parishioners who knit, crochet, or machine knit.
