Prayer Shawls are knitted by parishioners for those who need to be wrapped in the love and prayer of our community . As they knit, they pray for God’s love and healing for the person who would receive it.
If you know of someone who is ill or in need of healing in mind, body, or spirit, please take them a prayer shawl. Let them know that they are held in prayer by the community of Our Lady of Grace. Prayer Shawls are available in the parish office.
Like to Knit? Consider knitting prayer shawl. We prefer acrylics and easily washable yarn. Instructions are here—but feel free to be creative and design your own shawl. Completed shawls can be dropped off in the parish office to be blessed before they are delivered to our sick and homebound.
Every Tuesday, members of Our Lady of Grace meet in the Parish Office to sew quilts for Saint Joseph's Home, Catholic Charities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Saint Anne's Place, and Little Sisters of the Poor in Saint Paul. They sew over 100 quilts a year, both those who meet in the parish, and those who sew from home! Interested in quilting, join us Tuesdays from 9-11am from May-October. For more information Contact Mary Jane Sushank (Caroline—confirm with Mary Jane exactly what months they meat and if we can put her contact info in.)
