Prayer Shawl

Ministry

A Quiet Witness
Saturday, October 7th
10 AM to Noon

Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered, Westminser members tie a knot as they offer a specific prayer and the shawl is sent on its way. 

You are welcome to join this wonderful ministry.  If you do not knit the group will teach you!  Contact Joyce Wakefield or Mary Harris for more information.  The group meets the first Saturday of the month from 10:00 AM to Noon.
