Current Facts about St. Luke's Prayer Shawl Ministry

“I feel wrapped in God’s love when I snuggle into the Prayer Shawl St. Luke sent me. I am so grateful for the thoughts and prayers of everyone, and I have faith these prayers will see me through the challenges”……gratitude from Prayer Shawl Recipient

The Prayer Shawl Ministry, now in its 7th year of existence at St. Luke, distributed 39 prayer shawls in 2014, bringing comfort and love at times of health challenges and bereavement. This ministry is made possible by the dedicated knitters and crocheters from St Luke as well as donations from the Marin Knitters’ Guild. The Deacons give financial support for materials and mailing the shawls. Yarn has been donated by some of our St Luke members.

Here are a few photos of the many shawls that have been lovingly created…..
