What is the Prayer Shawl Ministry?


"Shawls...made for centuries universal and embracing,
symbolic of an inclusive,unconditionally loving, God.

They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace,
mother, hug, shelter and beautify.

                                Those who have received these shawls
                       have been uplifted and affirmed,
                                                                                             as if given wings to fly above their troubles..."

       Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo, gave birth to a ministry in 1998.  For more information, Click on link below.

Care and the love of knitting (and crochet) have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace.  Many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient.  Intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. When the shawl is completed it is offered a final ritual before being sent along its way.
