“I truly felt your love and prayers and the warmth of the Lord around me.” Alesha.
Thanks to the Prayer Shawl Ministry of St. James Catholic Church, Franklin, WI, patients, like Alesha, have received the gift of warmth and comfort.
Since 2005, members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry have crocheted and knitted more than 700 shawls, most of which have gone to patients at Advocate Aurora Health hospitals throughout the Milwaukee area.
“This shawl was crafted with prayers for your healing body, mind and spirit. As you wear this shawl, may you feel the warm embrace of your Heavenly Father.”
“This is your Pocket Prayer Cloth – wings to take you above your troubles. Hold it when you’re sad, worried, needing answers, needing comfort, at peace or ministering to others or praying. May it help you feel God’s presence.”
Some members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry have received prayer shawls in the past. “Creating shawls provides a way for them to give back and help others,” Bosanko said.
