Prayer Shawl Ministry

As of August 2020

over 2800

Shawls have been given away as a reminder of God's love

Did you know?

Since 2008, The Prayer Shawl Ministry has given the SJR Youth Group 10-20 shawls to bring with them each year they have participated in REACH. These shawls provide warmth and comfort to families in need.

We are looking for new members. If you do not know how to knit or crochet, we will gladly teach you. Shawls can also be made privately without coming to a meeting.

For details, please call 248-5993 x10

Due to Covid-19 our ministry is not currently meeting together, however, many of our members are still busy creating shawls.

Periodically we collect the completed Shawls and Fr. Peter blesses them. All new shawls are “quarantined” and then securely stored.

Shawls are available for pickup by calling the church office at
248-5993 x10 and ask for Judy Knab or Lois Rixner's contact information. You will be given a list of shawl colors over the phone. You then make your choice, decide on a pick-up time and your shawl and prayer will be on the front doorknob of the home you choose. We are happy to make our shawls available for anyone who may need some special comfort and prayers at this unsettling time.

 

The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 1:30 PM in Gathering Room.

( These meetings are ON HOLD DUE TO COVID-19)

Members use their time, treasure and talents to prayerfully create shawls to be given out and used as a reminder of God’s love for that person. This fulfills Christ's teachings to comfort the sick, comfort those who mourn, prayer and compassion for those in need. “Where two or more are gathered together…”.

 

Shawls can also be made at home and donated to the Prayer Shawl Ministry.
 

The Prayer Shawl Ministry works to :

  • provide shawls for anyone who needs one.

  • encourages people to offer their talents to make additional shawls prayerfully.



Below is the schedule of dates for our meetings and the blessings on the following weekend. NOTE: Our meeting times are 1:30 – 3:00 PM in the Gathering Room. Whenever there is a funeral luncheon, the meeting will be in Room S9 in the Parish Center.

Shawls will be available to be given out at the Mass when they are blessed.
