The Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. Philip Neri Parish was a CWL initiative in 2005 and today the knitting group, which consists of CWL members and other parishioners, is still alive and well.

These Prayer Shawls are blessed and then distributed by the St. Philip Neri Parish Nurses, as a comfort and to console those suffering a loss or bereavement, to the ill or those recovering from an illness and to the elderly. The shawls can also be given at the birth of a new baby and other significant life celebrations.

Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice, which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy.

The Ministry’s sole purpose is to give away the shawls. It is a gift freely given with no strings attached. The hope is that these shawls will literally wrap the recipients in prayer, providing hope, comfort and healing to those who need a reminder of God’s love for them, through the work of the hands off the knitters, and the prayers in their hearts.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry combines love for God and service to others in a tangible way by giving shawls to those who need comfort and prayer. Many prayers are knitted into each shawl. Knitting a Prayer Shawl helps and comforts not only the recipient, but the knitter as well.

The Knitting group meet at 2229 Haultain Ave @ 1pm each Monday and is always eager to have new members – experienced and inexperienced are encouraged to join. The group also welcomes knitters for other projects – e.g. slippers.

Knitting needles, patterns and crochet hooks are provided by the group.

The group also welcomes donations of wool which can be left at the Parish Nurses Office at St. Philip Neri.

If you are interested in joining or assisting the group in any way, please call:

Irene Hauser @ 306-343-1192.                                                                                         Prayer Shawl Ministry Coordinator.

    The minitry here did so many things that people are not aware about and they don't even know about it on reviews. I think that it's too complicated and it will not work for us.
