Eternal Comfort

We the Episcopal Church Women of Saint Andrews Episcopal Church, Meriden, CT started our Prayer Shawl Ministry about 12 months ago. Our rector thought it was a wonderful idea. We have approximately 12 knitters and we thought some of us would knit a few shawls for our parishioners in nursing homes. We meet monthly and we turn in our completed shawls to the rector and during our Sunday Service he blesses them and during the week he distributes the to the nursing home residents and to the patients in the veterens hospital and the local Hospital also.

He has shared with us the emotional responses of the patients upon recieving the shawls. He told us of one cancer patient who told him she wanted to go to her resting place with her shawl ... because she knew it came to her from the girls at church filled with Love and the blessings of her church and she felt the Lord with her when she wrapped it around her.

When she passed on her family made sure to place the shawl around her.

We all became emotional when we went to the wake and saw the shawl around her in the casket. She looked so at peace with her Lion Brand Yarn Shawl and her God keeping her in eternal comfort.

Respectfully Submitted
