Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl knitters prayerfully knit prayer shawls yearly; each shawl has a tag that reads, “Made with Love by Christ the King Parish”. Prayer shawls are blessed at the Compassionate Healer’s Mass and made available to all parishioners to distribute to loved ones; anyone who could benefit from the warmth, blessings and caring prayer that these shawls represent. Lay Pastoral Visitors make them available to new residents who come into the private care homes where they serve.
If you would like to knit or crochet a prayer shawl, various patterns are available. Generally, the shawls should be 20" wide by 55-60" in length. From time to time we do have need of smaller shawls for children or babies, but the majority of shawls are going to adults and this recommended minimum size is the ideal. Donations of yarn are also graciously accepted.
If you know of someone who would benefit from the comfort of a prayer shawl whether it's a family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor, they are available at any time.
