A prayer shawl brings comfort to the sick and those who are grieving; it brings hope to those in despair. It is created with care, love and prayer by a group of parishioners of all ages and talents.
Finished prayer shawls are brought to the monthly meeting and group members pray a special blessing over them. The prayer shawl ministry will gladly make and give this expression of caring to you.
If you know anyone who would like to receive a prayer shawl or if you would like to share your time and talent in making prayer shawls, contact the pastoral minister or Julie at 952-937-9287or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Wrapped in Prayer Project
The Prayer Shawl Ministry invites all those who knit and/or crochet to join us in making a prayer shawl for the ministry. You may drop off the finished shawl with a note that it is for “Wrapped in Prayer” at the parish office. The shawl may be any pattern and yarn you would like to use. The size of the shawl should be between 18-24 inches wide and 60-70 inches long. All that is required from you while you are making the shawl is that you begin with prayers for the person who will receive the completed shawl and continue throughout the creation of the shawl. We will have a special blessing of the shawls at weekend masses October 17/18.
You are welcome to join us at our monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in Room 115.
