Prayer Shawl Ministry

 

What is a prayer shawl? Who should have one?

Prayer shawls are lap blankets or shawls for anyone who is in need of healing prayers.  The shawls are made while praying for the person who will recieve them.  They can be knit, crocheted, sewn or quilted.

 

I need a prayer shawl or know someone who needs one.  How do I pick one up?

Prayer shawls can be picked up from the Religious Formation Office located in the South Wing – we have many to choose from!  There is also a basket in the gathering space with prayer shawls – both lap size and pocket size.   

 

How do I make a shawl?

Prayer shawls can be created at home, on your own, or you are welcome to join our Prayer Shawl team which meets on the third Saturday of the month from 9am to 12pm in the Good Shepherd Room.  Please contact Rita Maniscalco for more information. 

Patterns are available by going to the websites below, or contacting the Religious Formation Office.  Please call 414-762-4200 ext. 14 or email Karin Felske from the "Contact Us" tab.
