This Ministry is built on the belief that our faith in Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord, will bring comfort and healing to all who suffer. We choose to provide tangible evidence of our faith in this healing power by creating shawls of prayer in which to wrap our brothers and sisters who are in need of his healing touch.
Our ministers knit and crochet shawls, or tie fleece lap blankets. Whatever your talent or skill level, whether you are wishing to learn a new way of doing God’s work, or whether you are wanting to make sacred a current hobby or joy, please join us. All are welcome!
Sunday, May 7, we will be our last meeting before our summer hiatus. We will resume our meetings in September. We invite and look forward to you joining our ministry.
If you are in need of a prayer shawl, or if you know of anyone who could use a prayer shawl, please contact Marie Staffa at 847-885-7700, ext. 124 or
. Remember—these are gifts of love and are given away, not sold. For more information about the prayer shawl ministry, contact Karen Starke at
The monthly meetings our held September through May usually on the first Sunday of the month at 1:15 PM, upstairs in the Parish Ministry. Please note we are off June, July, and August.
