Prayer Shawl Ministry
In 1998, Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo, two graduates of the 1997 Women’s Leadership Institute at The Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut gave birth to a ministry as a result of their experience in this program.
Care and the love of knitting (and crochet) have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace. Many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. Intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. When the shawl is completed it is blessed by a pastor before being sent along its way.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry has been a part of PCPC’s Congregational Care ministries since 2007. Please contact Rev. Nicole Partin at (813) 253-6047 if you would like information about giving a prayer shawl to a member of the congregation or if you would like to join this group in their ministry.
Prayer Shawl Ministry will resume their meetings in the Fall when the Wednesday night dinners resume. For knitting questions contact Beverly Mims 872-7441. Keep Knitting!
