Prayer Shawl Ministry

prayer shawlsThe Prayer Shawl Ministry is an intimate knitting group that creates shawls for people who are ill or have lost someone in their life. Additionally, they knit blankets and hats for new babies in our congregation. Lesley Wheeler, our Parish Nurse, distributes the shawls on her calls to those who need them, praying with the recipient at the time of giving.

Once a year, we have a Prayer Shawl Ministry Sunday where all the shawls and blankets are blessed in front of the congregation; there is usually testimony that day from both a shawl recipient and the shawl knitter.

It’s a very simple but special group. If you’d like to learn more, contact Nancy Kenney.
