Theresa Bauer is hoping to start a Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. Boniface in the coming months. This ministry gathers to knit and crochet prayer shawls and lap blankets while praying for blessings of comfort, strength, healing, hope, patience, grace, and peace for those who will receive them. Completed shawls are blessed throughout the year and are available, free of charge, for anyone who requests one. They can be given to anyone who may need comfort and prayer after a loss, during bereavement, for the elderly and shut-ins, during illness and recovery, for cancer patients. Shawls are also given to those who are baptized and to those receiving their First Communion and Confirmation as a reminder of the prayers that our congregation offers to them as they grow in faith. You can create shawls at our monthly meetings or at home
