Prayer Shawl Ministry


“Knitted by hand and threaded with prayers of love and hope, this shawl is a gift to you. May it bring blessings of comfort, gifts of warmth and the knowledge that you are loved.”

St. Gertrude Prayer Shawl Ministry will be handing out shawls Sunday, August 27, after 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00am
Masses. Each shawl is stitched with prayers for your loved one. We will also be signing up new members. Would
you like to pray for others and have a handmade item as a result of that?

Anyone interested in knitting, crochet, and quilting are welcomed to join. This is a great ministry to pray for others, relieve stress, and work from home in your free time. Starting this fall we will meet every 3rd Wednesday
of the month. Our first meeting is Wednesday, September 20 at 9:00am in the St. Joseph Room.

On Tuesday, September 5, at 6:15pm, we are volunteering at SEM Villa, teaching the residents how to knit and crochet. If you have any questions or need a shawl, please contact Rebecca Diwan at 575-6658 or rebeccadiwan@gmail.com.
