Prayer Shawls

Prayer shawls are knit for people who are coping with grief and illness. Those who knit pray for the recipient every time the needles are picked up to knit. The finished shawl is laden with prayers and is meant to provide the recipient with comfort and wrap a tangible presence of prayer and caring from The Basilica community.

Prayer Shawl Ministry meets twice each month

First and Third Tuesdays of each month
10:30am-12:00pm, Rectory Conference Room

If you knit or would like to learn how, come and create shawls that bring God’s love, solace and comfort from our community to those who are ill or caring for an ill loved one. For more information, please call Katie at 763.458.8679 or Jane at 763.479.1555.

Prayer Shawl Ministry At Home

Have you thought about being a part of Prayer Shawl Ministry but you prefer to knit at home or can’t make it to Prayer Shawl meetings? We would be happy to bring yarn to you and pick up the shawls when you have finished. Please call Jane at 763.479.1555 for details.
