Prayer Shawl Ministry

Do you know of someone grieving, or facing another kind of deep loss to due to health or broken relationships? A group of Pax Christi parishioners knit and crochet beautiful shawls you can give to those facing these kinds of serious, life-changing issues.

If you would like to give a prayer shawl to someone please call the parish office, 952-941-3150. A suggested donation of $20 helps to offset the cost of yarn.

Wondering how you can be involved in this ministry? Do you knit or crochet? Would you like to bring the work of your hands to the care and comfort of others by making prayer shawls? Contact Renee Reardon, Care Ministry Coordinator, 952-405-7200, or

Part of the journey of prayer and faith is to recognize that we may never know how our love and care will touch or change another person’s life. Instead, we are invited to offer others our compassion and let whatever needs to happen, happen. There is an old saying: “Our hands are God’s hands.” Through the shawl-knitting ministry we can learn to trust the truth that God works through us when we care for friends and strangers alike.

Prayer shawls have been used throughout the generations – our ancient Israeli ancestors used prayer shawls to help them to pray and remind them of God’s constant presence.  Prayer and love of knitting or crocheting have been combined into a special ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and consolation, providing them with a hand-knit or crocheted shawl.
