The Mary Solarczyk Prayer Shawl Ministry

Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel its comfort? You can if it comes in the form of a prayer shawl. Prayer shawls are simple gifts of grace from God that are prayerfully and lovingly stitched by us as a reminder that God’s promise is always with us.

Every day in our own individual lives, we encounter people for whom a special prayer would be of great comfort and support. The Prayer Shawl Ministry began in June 2009 and combines prayerful ministry and the love of knitting and crocheting to reach out to those individuals in need of comfort and solace. To date, the ministry has gifted more than 800 prayer shawls.  We also have given away hats, scarves and other items offered at no charge

for those in need.

If you would like to be a part of this ministry, have some yarn to donate, or you know someone who would benefit from the gift and comfort of a prayer shawl, please contact Pat at 717-479-1485 or Veronica (Hispanic Liaison) at 585-355-7251.
