This ministry aids in providing prayer support and encouragement to those in need. Prayer shawls are blessed by the priest and are are given, under the discretion of the ministry leader, to those who are suffering physically, spiritually or mentally.
If you know of anyone, or any family that would appreciate a prayer shawl, please contact the office at 780-352-2365 and your information will be passed on to the coordinator of this ministry.
Prayer Shawl gatherings are on hold due to Covid-19
but shawls can still be knit and donated
and given to those that are struggling.
Shawls knit with love and prayers! Knitters gather once a month as a prayerful community and continue their craft in the comfort of their own homes.
Regular meetings are held in the Father Bednar Library at Sacred Heart Chruch every 2nd Wed of the month after the 9:30am Mass from 9:30am to 12:00noon (excluding July and August).
New knitters welcome!
