Prayer Shawl Ministry

As of August 2019

over 2600

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

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

  • Judy Knab at 223-3434,

  • Lois Rixner at 377-1242  or

  • Donna Stein at 698-5014
     

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

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 asks the parish's help in the following ways:

  • Spread the word that shawls are available to anyone who needs one.

  • Help encourage people to offer their talents to make additional shawls prayerfully.

  • We gave 10 shawls to the Youth Group to bring to the families whose homes they worked on in NC in 2008.  We continue to give shawls to the Youth Group each year. We would consider requests like this on a limited basis with sufficient notice.



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.
