Prayer Shawl Ministry

"To comfort those in need with a prayer shawl"


The Prayer Shawl Ministry creates hand knitted or crocheted shawls and blankets that are given to those in need of their healing comfort.  They are created with thoughtful prayer in hopes that the recipient will feel enveloped in the warmth and consolation of this gift of love.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry has given over 100 shawls to parishioners and extended family. Prayer Shawls are distributed on the first Saturday of the month to those who have signed up to receive one. 

Yarn donations are always welcomed and needed.  Members of the ministry meet once a month.  New members are welcome.  Everyone works at home at their own pace with their patterns of choice.

Do you know someone in need of a prayer shawl?

Prayer shawls are given at our 8:30 a.m. First Saturday Mass. The shawls are blessed before the Mass and given to those in need. If you or someone you know would like a prayer shawl, please call the parish office at 714-774-2595.
