Prayer Shawl Ministry

But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight"
Luke 10:33

What is Prayer Shawl Ministry?
It is a ministry that:

  • is contemplative knitting of shawls with intention.
  • sends love and compassion to a recipient of a shawl with each stitch, knitting comfort, encouragement, healing, peace.
  • discovers and shares that praying with and for others is as meaningful as the shawls given away.
  • celebrates and serves our Lord.

What is Needed to Get Involved?

  • a generous heart and a desire to use our hands to knit the prayers of our hearts.
  • any level or experience of knitting is welcome, including beginners!
  • a willingness to laugh, pray, make new friends, share what we know and learn from one another.
  • knitters may bring wool of your choice or some wool will be available.
