Prayer Shawl Ministry

Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace's Prayer Shawl Ministry Page. Our Ministry is based on the National organization Prayer Shawl Ministry.

Shawls must be REQUESTED by members of the community. Anyone who wishes a shawl must also tell us why we’re creating the shawl. Shawls can be created for many different reasons. Here are some examples:

  • Death of a family member
  • Birth of a Baby
  • Illness
  • Family member of an inmate or someone in serious legal trouble
  • Stresses such as loss of job – can be used as a “Keep the Faith” gift
  • New Bride
  • Fantastic Good Deeds – an honorable good citizen

Good, clean, used or new yarn donations are accepted. Of course,cash is always accepted. It usually takes 5 or 6 large skeins of yarn to make a nice sized shawl. We are more than willing to teach anyone who would like to learn how to crochet for free.Knitters are also welcome.We’re also looking for individuals that like paper craft. We need people to assemble the cards that are attached to the shawls. For more information contact Tami at sweetnovena@olqpgrafton.org
