Blessings abound
Created By: Rosie Rundell

I started our ministry at Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Manhattan KS last July. I had received a prayer shawl from my sister-in-law when I received my Master's Degree. When she explained to me what this ministry is all about (my brother is the Methodist minister in Wilton Iowa), I knew that it was somthing we needed to be offering at our parish. I am the Pastoral Associate there so I got things organized and advertized.

I was overwhelmed at the response from our ladies. At the first gathering, ten women showed up. Some told me that it was the first time that the Church offered them something they thought the could do in stewardship. They weren't singers for the choir or chairpersons of committees, but they sure can knit and crochet. They loved the idea of coming together each week to pray together outside of the regular Sunday worship and be able to reach out to others with the gift of being able to knit and crochet. They felt needed and wanted.

We call our ministry - The Shepherd's Hands

My blessing in this ministry is that I get to take the blessed shawls to the people that we have prayed for. It is also a wonderful outreach to those homebound and in the nursing homes - a means to keep them connected to the parish and know that they have not been forgotten. In the first two months we crafted and deliverd 32 shawls.

It has been a grace-filled ministry for me and our parish. The notes of thanks that we have received, the tears I have witnessed, the smiles I have received, renew our desire to be like Jesus to others.
