Prayer Shawl Ministry
In this new ministry, prayer shawls and lap blankets will be made for our sick and homebound. With each stitch, a prayer is said for those who will receive the shawl. Ministry members will gather at the YEC on the first Tuesday of each month, starting June 7, at 10:00a.m. to “crochet and pray” or knit. While most of the work will be completed at home, all are welcome to join us to pray the Rosary, the Divine Mercy chaplet, a litany, etc. for the healing, comfort, and peace of the our community. If you don’t crochet/knit but would like to participate, a donation of 3 skeins of yarn will make one prayer shawl. See a sample prayer shawl in the gathering area. Contact Pat Durham at 819-633-7070 if you have any questions.
