Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawls and Prayer Lap Rugs are prayerfully knitted or crocheted by various members of our congregation. They are then blessed and made available to be dispersed. Any one can take
a shawl to give to a person they feel is in need of being wrapped in prayer.
There are many reasons for this need. It could be a death in the family, an illness, an employment or family crisis or a happy occasion such as the birth of a child. You are free to determine who will benefit by having a shawl. The finished shawls are kept in the Narthex and in the Chapel. We do ask that when you take one, you sign it out in the notebook as to the person receiving the prayers and blessings from this ministry at St. Edward’s Church.
There are some shawls available for use by the congregation during services. These are on a rack at the rear of the Nave and should be returned after the service.
