Prayer Shawl Knitters

Contact: Maureen Fenner

Prayer shawls provide comfort, consolation and warmth to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one or who are suffering from a major illness. Knitters and crocheters in this ministry lovingly create shawls which have prayers and blessings in each stitch.

The shawls are blessed at a special ceremony during a weekend Mass.  Once wrapped with a colorful ribbon and bow, they are given as a tangible reminder for the recipient that they are covered in God’s love.
