Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Paul's Hook and Needles Company # 1

The St. Paul’s Prayer Shawl Ministry, less formally known as The St. Paul’s Hook and Needles Company #1, began its fourth year of service on January 31, 2011. As of April 4, 2011, we have distributed 632 shawls to members of the St. Paul’s family, the local community, and other parts of the world. Our ongoing mission continues to be bringing the comfort that only a prayer shawl can provide to those who are experiencing times of difficulty. In addition, our ministry has expanded to include joyful occasions such as weddings, births, baptisms, and confirmation.

The members of the prayer shawl team are grateful to those of you who have been so supportive of our ministry. Your kind words of encouragement and your generous donation of funds for yarn and other supplies are greatly appreciated.

This is truly a labor of love! There are no words that can describe the fellowship that we share as we knit and crochet together and as we lay our hands on the fruits of our labor and offer prayers, both silent and spoken, for those who will receive them.
