The Prayer Shawl Ministry at Grace is designed to bring together people who knit or crochet shawls, blankets, hats for newborns, etc. Completed pieces are blessed during a Eucharist. These items are given to people in need – for reasons of illness or distress of any kind. They can also be given in celebration – the birth of a child, a baptism or a wedding.
Shawls may take many forms: they might be triangular, round or rectangular or they may be small blankets suitable for babies or laps. They might be made as a single piece, or may be assembled from smaller parts, like a granny square afghan.
