Prayer Shawls

Our parish started a Yarn Ministry group in the Spring of 2012. We make prayer shawls. We use Homespun. It's about a 50/50 split between knitting and crocheting. In additional to offering the shawls to our parish famility and community, we have sent them to parishes in Sandy Hook, CT, Boston MA, and West, TX, for distribution as the parish priest sees fit. Since inception the group has made approximately 200 shawls.

Just recently AARP magazine had an article following up with the grandparents of the children lost at Sandy Hook. One grandparents mentioned receiving prayer shawls when commenting about the outpouring of support they had received.

Our group leader has pictures of our shawls. If you are interested, she could send you some.
