Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is an inspiring movement of people who gather to pray and knit or crochet for those in need. The ministry’s sole purpose is to give away the shawls they create -- shawls they hope will literally wrap recipients in prayer. For more information about prayer shawls, search the term 'prayer shawl' on the Internet, visit www.shawlministry.com or click here for an overview of crafting as a spiritual movement

Knitting Healing Shawls


Our church-St. John's Episcopal, Canandaigua NY- has started a knitting ministry.

We knit hats, mittens and scarves which are distributed at Christmas time to the folks who come to the soup kitchen each day.

In addition we knit healing shawls which our lay ministers take to those who might find comfort and care through them.

One requirement for all of these items is that they be easy to care for so Lion Brand yarn is great.

I know many knitters use the Homespun for the shawls because it is so soft and comes in a pleasing range of colors.
