Prayer Shawl Ministry
“Begin to knit, and God will show you the pattern and give you the yarn.”
Adapted from a German Proverb
In 1998 two women from Hartford Connecticut, Janet Severi Bristow and Victoria Galo began The Shawl Ministry. They combined the love of knitting or crocheting with compassion and prayer that would reach out to those in need of comfort and solace as well as in celebration and joy.
Christ the King offers this prayerful ministry and spiritual practice for our parishioners who are experiencing difficult times. Our knitting circle is comprised of seasoned knitters and those who are beginners. The love in each stitch is the same.
Upon the completion of a prayer shawl or prayer blanket, it will be blessed before it is offered to the recipient.
If you are interested in joining our ministry, please contact Krysta Giacobone: email@example.com or 615-495-2998
We will gratefully accept donations of yarn or needles.
We will gratefully accept prayers for our volunteer knitters as well as for our recipients.
