Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry was started in 1998 by Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo in Hartford, Connecticut. The shawl makers pray before starting a shawl and while making them, then the shawls are blessed by a priest or minister before being presented to the recipients. The recipients fall into many categories from seriously or chronically ill, elderly, handicapped, bereaved, depressed, wedding couples, new babies and mothers, disaster survivors, to those alienated from the church. The shawls comfort and embrace those wearing them as they are now wrapped in our prayers. Please let us know if we need to add anyone to our prayer shawl list. The recipients can be from anywhere as this is a worldwide ministry. If you have any questions or need to add someone to our list call Susy Lucot at 423-623-0525. Anyone interested in learning to knit or crochet should call Susy, Barbara Turner at 423-487-3838 or Claire Konz at 423-487-2173.
