Shawl Ministry

A Prayer Shawl is a shawl – knitted or crocheted – by any individual who prays prayers of comfort, healing, love, peace and thanksgiving into their work while creating a masterpiece. It is then Blessed by the Priest and given to someone suffering from an illness or ailment or for a special occasion that the wearer of the shawl may find comfort, healing, love, peace and thanksgiving while wearing the Prayer Shawl. Special occasions could be: Baptism, a new born, wedding, anniversary, mothers wishing to nurse their infant and other such events.

At St. John Bosco, we are a small group of ladies who gather at the church the first Friday of the  month to share ideas and pray together while creating these masterpieces of comfort, healing, love, peace and thanksgiving. New members are welcome and necessary to keep up with the needs of the people.
