Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Dorcas Group (craft group) is going to start a Prayer Shawl Ministry.

In the past, shawls have come to symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. The ministry’s message of caring is simple, universal and enduring. Prayers are given for the recipients of each shawl. As we are just starting out, we are asking anyone who can knit, crochet or sew to please consider helping us so we can have a number of shawls to present to those in need. We have patterns, yarn and fabric that we can provide or you can use your own. Once we have a number of shawls on hand, we will be accepting requests for them. Any questions, please call or email Carol Fiess at 317-336-2289 or
