Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl Ministry started in US in 1998. The following is a quote from Lion Brand Yarn which supplies free patterns for these shawls on their website.
"What is a prayer shawl? Throughout the ages, shawls have come to symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. Since the inception of the Prayer Shawl Ministry in 1998, the members of this ecumenical organization have lovingly donated their time and talents by creating hand-knitted and crocheted shawls for those in need. What started as a grass-roots movement has quickly grown into an international cause, with countless numbers of shawls being given to grateful recipients around the globe. The Ministry's message of caring is simple, universal and enduring. And we have seen time and time again that the creation and presentation of a prayer shawl, like all acts of generosity, enriches the giver as well as the recipient."
Aurora United Church was the inspiration for the start of this important ministry here at Mount Albert United Church.
If you would like to get involved in the making of these shawls, please contact Joyce Brown.
If you know of anyone in need of a prayer shawl, please contact Joyce Brown.
