Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets every Wednesday at 10:00am in the Adult Formation Room of the Parish House. At noon, there is a Eucharist followed by a bag lunch.
A group gathered together, for singleness of purpose, to knit comforting prayer shawls for those in need. Given freely to any and all who could benefit from the comfort and warmth; not only to the body, but to the soul. A very special part of the prayer shawl ministry is the knitting of baptismal blankets for the church’s tiny newborn babies….such a lovely way to be part of the christening services and welcome a new member of the church family. Such a caring group of happy go-lucky knitters, each working their skills to finish such creative lovely shawls. Each one, a special masterpiece.
Carlene, Pauline, Judy, Carole, Ruth, Karen, Jeanne, Susan, Dot, Andrea, Marilyn C., Marie, Bev C., Norma, Debby, Priscilla, Gladys Mae, Marilyn F., Barbara, Pam, Bev H., & Grace are the dedicated knitters. Countless are the praises and thanks from so many who cherish their blessed prayer shawls during and after.
Blessed are the Prayer Shawl knitters!
Varied are the reasons why prayer shawls are given or requested; surgeries, illnesses requiring hospitalizations; serious falls resulting in broken bones; terminal diagnosis, sudden loss of a loved one or, on a happier note, given to a church group going on a pilgrimage. In any event, the prayer shawls are gladly received and treasured.
