Care and the love of knitting and crochet have been combined in a prayerful ministry that reaches out to others.  Many blessings are worked into every shawl.  The knitter or crocheter begins each one with prayers for the recipient and intentions are continued throughout its creation.  When completed it is offered a final blessing before being sent on its way.

 

Shawls are made for many reasons - for those who are housebound, sick, bereaved, undergoing medical procedures or who are distressed in some way.  They are also given for occasions of celebration and to mark the beginning of a new stage in a recipient's life. 

 

New knitters and crocheters are very welcome!  Refreshments available.  For more information contact Maureen Denney via our CONTACT FORM
