Prayer Shawl Ministry - A Beautiful Experience

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry has been together for one year. In this one year, we have knitted and distributed approximately 190 shawls, not only in our local area of Windsor, Connecticut, but as far as Seattle, Washington. We meet once a month at our church, where this all began, to work on our shawls and also pray for those who will be receiving one of them. We also have had fund raisers so that we can replenish our yarn supplies. We are all so dedicated to this Ministry and a wonderful way to spend some time with women in our church that you normally do not get to see other than church services.

These shawls are blessed by our pastor and sent along with a letter explaining the Prayer Shawl. My mother and I were so blessed this past March to receive one of these shawls when my Dad passed away. To this day, Mom wraps herself in this shawl when she is having a down day...she knows that Dad is with her at that point.

This has been the most beautiful experience for me and I thoroughly enjoy being part of a group of women that is doing something so beautiful for those in need.
