The Elaine Liatsos Memorial Prayer Shawl Ministry
Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. (*The shawls can also be crocheted, quilted, woven or machine knitted as well!)
Some uses for the shawl … undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marriage ceremonies; birthing, nursing a baby; bridal shower or wedding gift; leading ritual; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others; graduation, birthday, anniversary, ordination, holiday gifts; or just socializing … there are endless possibilities!
