A prayer shawl is a simple wrap knitted or crocheted with love and prayer to be given to someone in need. It is meant to bring comfort to the wearer and serve as a reminder of God’s constant presence. Many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The creator begins with prayers for the recipient. When the shawl is completed, it is offered a final blessing before being sent along its way. We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Heritage room.
