Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Vincent DePaul Parish has a prayer shawl ministry.  Adult prayer shawls are available for anyone needing to be surrounded in prayer due to illness or other circumstances.  Contact Dianne at the rectory office if you would like one for yourself or a friend. The parish is blessed to have many parishioners who crochet or knit provide these shawls. The prayer shawl is different as the maker prays for the individual who will receive the shawl while they crochet or knit.  If you are interested in making prayer shawls contact Bev Wilkerson 660-473-2033 or Carol Schibi 660-620-3795 for instructions.

We are in need of baby afghan prayer shawls. The Bartocks give them to the parents at Baptism Prep.  Janet has said they need to be a little larger as parents are waiting a little longer to baptize and some of the children are 6 mos to 3 years old. The parents are always surprised and most appreciative of this gift of prayer and warmth for their new family members.  Those who crochet have made some really pretty baby afghans and prayer shawls.  Many thanks for using your talents in this way.
