Prayer Shawl Ministry

Shawls are knitted or crocheted into a “mantle of prayer” by parishioners. Prayers are said during the process for the recipients who are seriously ill.

As the recipients turn over the needs to God, we ask that they might receive the consolation and peace that only God can give. The recipient’s name is written in a book and they continue to be prayed for.

The shawls are bless by our priests, usually at a Sunday Mass, and a prayer is attached to each shawl. Although there is no charge for the shawls, a donation would be greatly appreciated for the cost of the materials and/or the funding of the Ministry.

It is very important to realize that the shawls are just a tangible sign of the prayers of our parish for those in need. Please remember to pray for those who receive a prayer shawl and seek God’s consolation and peace.
