Prayer Shawl Ministry

Members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry knit and crochet shawls and blankets for members of our parish community who are in need of spiritual comfort.  The handmade items are physical gifts and reminders to the recipients that they are being thought of, prayed for, and cared about.  All items are prayed over and blessed before being distributed.  Parishioners who are homebound, bereaved, ill, or otherwise in spiritual need can receive a shawl or blanket.


All skill levels are welcome!  We meet twice a month for fellowship and support; most crafting is done outside of meetings.  Every 1st & 3rd Thursday at 7:00 PM in Parish House.
