For the past decade, approximately 20 women meet every Thursday in the Fireside Room at Saint Francis of Assisi Parish to use their skilled hands to knit or crochet shawls/blankets for those suffering from illness or any challenge to their body, mind or spirit.
Through word of mouth only, the Ministry has provided over 1,500 shawls to those who have made requests on behalf of loved ones or friends. Over 1,500 handmade shawls filled with prayers, hope, and the knowledge to the recipients that they are not alone.
The Silent Evangelists – the Prayer Shawl Ministry, offer a loving extension of our faith in God, our church and the gifts of prayer, in a warm, soft shawl.
We extend an invitation to anyone who would like to join us in prayer and offer your skills with yarn and needles, if you choose. We welcome you any Thursday from 4 – 6 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Donations gratefully accepted.
