Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawls are prayerfully knit by members of the Trinity community, blessed by Clergy and given to members of our church community or anyone they love near or far when they are facing illness, grief, or any other serious challenge.  Shawls have a label attached to them with the blessing “A warm hug from God” which is how one recipient described the shawl she received. Shawls are appropriate for men and women, children and adults alike.  Recipients have told us they are deeply comforting.  We also knit Prayer Squares which are lovingly made and blessed but are smaller, perfect when a shawl is too large and wonderful for everyone. 

We would love more knitters!
We meet the second Wednesday of every month, from 10am to noon in the Parlor. Please join us!
