Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl Group
Through the Prayer Shawl Committee, members combine the healing power of prayer with the healing Ministry of human touch, enfolding each shawl recipient in genuine loving concern and envisioning each shawl as extending “hug” and bringing comfort and solace even when we’re not physically present. We gather once a month in the Parish Center where we pray and tenderly knit and crochet beautiful shawls. These are given to those with heartache due to many situations to help them feel the warm, loving presence of Christ. We also make hats and gloves which are sent to a soup kitchen in Pittsburg, PA for the cold months ahead for homeless and street people.
We welcome anyone who is interested in sharing your skills, or learning a new one to become a member of this caring Ministry.
