The Prayer Shawl Ministry (PSM) has existed for about 5 years. The mission of the Prayer Shawl Ministry is to provide hope, comfort, and healing. It is a unique way of reaching out to the community in a very tactile way. A prayer shawl can be seen as a symbolic “hug” from God. It is very special and much appreciated by the people who need to be comforted for a variety of reasons.

Would you like to join the PSM?  Do you knit or crochet or know someone who does?  We would love for you to join us.  We meet about 8 times a year.  At this time we bring any completed shawls to be blessed by a priest.  We request that you make 1-2 shawls per year.   We have labels to be sewn onto each completed shawl.  If you need yarn we can provide you with some.

Do you know someone that needs a shawl?  Someone that needs love, prayers or encouragement?  Please don’t hesitate to ask.

If you would like to join our ministry, have any questions or need a shawl for a loved one please contact Rose Mary Becker at or call 650-941-9673.
