Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl Ministry

           The newest ministry at Knox is the Prayer Shawl Ministry. It has been off to a great start since June when a keen group of knitters, “knitters to be” and generally “crafty” people met at the call of Helen Overgaard.

            The scope of this ministry is intended to be kept broad – welcoming others and their creative efforts from beyond our church and making items for comfort beyond shawls.

            As shawls are ready to be gifted, they will be blessed. When possible the congregation will be involved with the blessing.

            Records will be kept of recipients, shawls and creators, as well as patterns, needles, yarns, fibres and cost.

            If you would like to join this ministry or sponsor it, please let us know. We do not want yarn donations, however, we would welcome donations to purchase yarn (supplies). Contact is the Knox office 604 261 3747 or knox5600@telus.net

            To date, 12 shawls have been blessed, presented and are now reminding those who received them of the love and caring enveloping them.
