We began making prayer shawls in 2006 after...
Created By: Mary Baucher

We began making prayer shawls in 2006 after hearing about the ministry from a friend. So far in two and a half years we have made, blessed and given 92 shawls, some as far away as England and Australia to persons who experience illness, death of loved ones, or as an expression of love and thanks.

Also in that time we've made about 365 caps to send to poor refugee children in Afghanistan as well as a local organization that works with emotionally disturbed children. Our contact in Afthanistan is a niece of one of our members. Beautiful hand-knit children's sweaters go to local inter-faith ministry and to children who have a parent incarcerated. Our families also are recipients of our hand-knit items sometimes.

We meet every other week, but obviously knit individually at other times. Most agree that our quiet time of blessing a completed shawls is a blessing to each of us. Recipients always express gratitude for the gift of a shawl that may to some represent being held in the arms of God.
