Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry welcomes our RCIA candidates with Prayer Shawls! To date we have given out 440 shawls! Those who receive, knit and crochet these shawls are truly loved and blessed!
On Sunday February 16th, Fr. Larry blessed our shawls, now they are ready for delivery!!! Our Prayer Shawl Ministry welcomes four new members, Alysia Proko, Debbie Roditski, Mary Wasielewski and Judy Silon. Our ministry makes shawls for the sick and homebound members and friends of Our Lady Queen of Peace. If you are interested in becoming a member or receiving a shawl for a sick loved one, you may contact Janice Cromwell at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Parish Center. Those who receive, knit and crochet these shawls are truly loved and blessed! Yours in Christ! Janice Cromwell
May 19 2016 As we celebrate the end of another year together I would like to thank our prayer shawl family for their time, talent and dedication to our ministry. We have given out 775 shawls to our our sick, homebound and Rachel's Vineyard. We have also given out 45 baptismal blankets over the past year. I'd like to thank those who have donated yarn, especially Mary Cordes who recently sent us 3 boxes of yarn and all those who have sent us thank you notes, pictures of their loved ones and donations!! It's all very much appreciated. Our ministry is a family of loved ones who get together to do God's work!! Those who receive our shawls and knit or crochet them are truly loved and blessed! See you in September! Come join us!!
The vision of our ministry is to combine the care and love of knitting and crocheting into a prayerful ministry which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace. We deliver our shawls to our sick relatives and friends. If you are adding a loved one to the Sick Relatives and friends list or asking for their names to be added to the prayer of the faithful ~ You should also consider asking the Parish Center for a Prayer Shawl. As we begin our 4th year together our Prayer Shawl family have given out 310 shawls.
If you have sent us a photograph or thank you letter you will be able to view it in our memory books at our Ministry Fair. Our first meeting of the year will be September 15th at 7 PM in our Parish Center! This is a very rewarding ministry, those who knit, crochet and receive these shawls are truly loved and Blessed.
