SERVING OTHERS LOCALLY, REGIONALLY AND GLOBALLY

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Shawls have been made for centuries. They are universal and embracing; they comfort and enfold; wrap and warm; mother and hug. Knitters pray for the persons while they make the shawl. When the shawl is completed it is blessed. When a shawl is given, the recipient receives a card with prayers and a brief history of the prayer shawl ministry attached.

Shawls are given to those who are undergoing chemo, the bereaved, those who are going through a difficult time, someone moving away, a new mother, an ordination – – any occasion where someone could be touched by encouragement and prayer. Prayer shawls are made for those known and unknown. Making a prayer shawl helps and comforts not only the recipient, but the maker as well.

If you are interested in joining the group, know of someone who would benefit from receiving a shawl or would like to donate yarn or fleece fabric for making shawls, please contact Carol Ann Osinski at 920/746-9946 or rcosinski@gmail.com.
