Our Savior’s Lutheran Church of Virginia, MN prayer shawl ministry


Prayer Shawls

This ministry quite literally wraps people in the power of prayer. Volunteers knit or crochet each shawl, and pray for the recipient and others while making it.  When pastors visit anyone who needs care – from families of newborns to those battling illness or facing the loss of a loved one — they bring them a shawl. A total of 49 shawls were given out last year alone.

Want to make a shawl? It’s easy! Contact the church office to get instructions. Or make your own and drop it off at the office when you’re done.
