Tags: Prayer Shawls
St. Michael’s welcomes both expert and neophyte knitters, and crocheters, to the second gathering of its newly formed Prayer Shawl Guild to be held on Sunday, February 12, beginning at 11:30am in the community house. A warm lunch will be provided.
Rhonda Jaacks of Harlequin Farm in Lakeville will be offering knitting instructions to beginning knitters of all ages. Rhonda raises Finn sheep, highly prized for their superior wool, on a small sustainable farm where she spins her own wool.
Prayer shawls are created in response to answering the need for comforting others. St. Michael’s invites all to share their love of knitting, crocheting or sewing to join their group. Blessings are prayed into every shawl and upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. Shawls will be donated to local residents who are hospitalized, in nursing home or hospice care. Additionally, a church member will be bringing some of the prayer shawls to the Bethesda Naval Hospital for wounded war veterans, some of whom are from Connecticut.
