"Shawls...made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God.
They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify.
Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed,
as if given wings to fly above their troubles..."

Do you love to knit or crochet? If so, put your talents to good use by getting involved with St. Lawrence’s Prayer Shawl Ministry. Each shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient and continues to pray and meditate as the shawl is created. Once completed, the shawls can be returned to the church or given directly to the recipient. Shawls are offered to individuals undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marriage ceremonies; birthing, nursing a baby; bridal shower or wedding gift; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others; graduation, birthday, anniversary, ordination, holiday gifts; or just socializing...there are endless possibilities! This is a "quiet" ministry. Please join us and put your needles and hooks to good use bringing comfort and prayers to those in need.
