Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry uses yarn and fabric to create beautiful prayer shawls to comfort and warm those in need. For instance: those working through cancer treatment, significant illness, the loss of a loved one--people who would benefit from being wrapped in prayers and love.  All shawls are blessed before going out to individuals.  After the prayer shawl is no longer needed, if it remains in good condition, then it is passed onto another who needs the warmth, prayers and love.

Wonderful St. Simon Prayer Shawl Ministry knitters, crocheters and quilters meet on the second Thursdays of the month in the Rectory Conference Room from 10:00 to 11:30am.

All are welcome.
Knitters need: knitting needles size 11 or 13, three skeins of yarn and prayers for health.
Crocheters need: a size K hook, yarn and prayers for joy.

Monetary donations are welcome for this lovely ministry, to help defray the costs of the labels and special soft yarn -- please drop any donations off at the Church office marked "Prayer Shawl."
