The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a new ministry at OLH. This is a special way to reach out with love and care to others who are hurting, to offer comfort to those in need of healing from an illness or surgery, to console those grieving, and to bring hope to those in despair. It’s a way to let those who are lonely or facing a crisis know they are not alone.
We invite others to join us as we stitch in prayer each row of every Prayer Shawl; and, we ask for God’s love, mercy, and healing grace as it is wrapped around the recipient.
We will meet monthly in the Hayes Community Room as follows:
The next monthly meeting will be this Wednesday, November 6th, from from 1–3PM.
The second Wednesday of the month meeting will be from 6:30–8:30PM next Wednesday, November 13th.
If you would like to help make Prayer Shawls, but you are unable to attend the meetings, please contact Juanita at: (847) 731-5792, or Jackie at: (224) 627-9107. Prayer Shawls are 20” x 60”, and we suggest acrylic or cotton yarn that is washable and a medium weight skein (4 ply). You can use your pattern, or we will be happy to share our patterns. We also welcome those who want to create blankets through working with quilt fabric or fleece.
If you would like to provide financial support, please make your check payable to: “Our Lady of Humility Church”, and write “Prayer Shawl Ministry” in the memo section. Your donation will help us purchase quantities of yarn, and batti ng for our quilters, which our both necessary for our work.
We look forward to having you join us.
