This ministry reaches out to those in need of comfort and compassion. Thoughts and prayers go into the making of each shawl. The needle worker begins each one with the hope that the recipient feels the concern and warmth of our parish community. These intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Once completed, a final prayer is offered over it at one of the meetings before it is given to the recipient. The blessings of many caring hands are worked into each and every prayer shawl.
Our Lady of the Lake Prayer Shawl Ministry welcomes donations of yarn and/or needles and crochet hooks, as well as monetary donations for our yarn purchases. Donations can be dropped off at the parish rectory during normal business hours. We are grateful for all donations. If you know someone who is in need of a prayer shawl, please contact the parish rectory with your request.
