The Prayer Shawl Ministry at Transfiguration is a creative outreach ministry for women and men who are interested in either knitting or crocheting shawls to be given to parishioners, family, and friends who need an “extra” bit of God’s love, care, and compassion because of illness, a hospital stay, or death. Members meet once a month in fellowship to create and prepare shawls, which are then prayed over and taken to those in need. In only two years, this ministry has given over 100 shawls locally and as far away as Seattle, Pennsylvania, and South Africa! All levels of expertise are welcome and encouraged. Over 25 men and women participate on a regular basis. It meets the third Monday evening of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Parlor. Contact Sally Manning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
