St. Gabriel's Prayer Shawls

There are about 10 of us that go once a month. 1 Dad and 1 Teen & 8 Ladies. We have a good time. We start off with a prayer and we talk about how many shawls went out last month. We need to make more kid shawls,:( But we gave out 11 in December, and I know of one story that is wonderful!! We gave a 4 year old who found out last year he has Cancer. We gave him the shawl in December and 4 weeks later he's home and the Doctors can't believe how well he has done with the meds. He is now in Remission!!!! We also give them to Millitary people to remind them were praying for their safe return home. I'm not sure how many people we have given out shawls, but its quit alot. Our group makes about 12 shawls a month, sometimes more. We don't get much in donations of any kind. We are always spending our own money on yarn. I look for sales on Lion Brand yarn, just about any kind! Love it!!! Maybe if we got the Newspaper to report on what we do, it would make it more affortable. But we fomd a way!! Denise
