Prayer Shawls Ministry
As we move through life there are many times when we need a hug from loved ones. But sometimes that hug is not possible. Grace has a ministry that offers support during times like these.
Members of Grace United Church’s Prayer Shawl Ministry knit or crochet shawls that are made and interwoven with prayer and blessed by the Prayer Shawl Ministry members and by our congregation. To view the most recent blessing, click here. The shawls are then made available to those in the church and community in need of comfort or healing, as a form of joy.
Shawls are also given to Grace’s newly baptised children.
There are a number of different kinds of Shawls created by this group:
Triangular Shawl Hug Me Tight Rectangular Shawl Cotton Chemo Cap
To request a shawl, chemo cap, baby blanket or lap rug please contact the church office.
Thank you. We will arrange for you a pickup or delivery of the shawl. Please note at this time we can only fill requests for delivery in the Burlington area.
