Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl Ministry Group with The Rev. Charlotte LaForest

The Prayer Shawl ministry involves parishioners who like to knit or to crochet. These parishioners then make prayer shawls on their own time and bring the finished products to St. John's.


When a time or opportunity presents itself, the completed shawls are then labeled, wrapped together with a printed prayer card, and delivered to individuals who may be ill, hospitalized, or are bereaved. Blankets for infants or children are also made available from time to time. 

If you’re interested in getting involved with this ministry, please contact Chelsea DiDonato.
