Prayer Shawls - A Blessing to All

Our church, St Lukes Lutheran in Middleton, WI, has a prayer shawl ministry. It began in March of 2001. There are about 40 knitters in our group. Since that date in 2001, we have distributed over 300 prayer shawls to elderly and ill people in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living and homebound people. We also make baptism shawls and have presented 175 baptism shawls in that time. The pastors give them to the recipients and we have many wonderful thank you notes from individuals and families who have benefited. It has truly been a blessing to both those who receive the shawls and those of us who knit them. Our story has been printed in The Lutheran, the national magazine of the ELCA. Joann Turner
