Prayer Shawls

Prayer Shawls are tangible signs of our love and concern for one another. They are a comfort to someone who is going through a rough time such as illness, hospitalization, bereavement, or any other life challenge. They are also offered in times of celebration such as the birth of a child, marriage, or going away to college.  It’s like a warm hug from the community every time it’s used.

Anyone is free to donate or request a Prayer Shawl, regardless of whether you’re a member of St. Peter’s or not. If you know of someone who could benefit from receiving a shawl, please call the parish office at 204-488-8093.

If you’d like to put your knitting or crocheting skills to work, resources including patterns and prayers before beginning can be found at Completed
shawls can be brought to the church building or you can call the office to arrange for pickup.
