What is a Prayer Shawl?

Simply put, a prayer shawl is a soft warm shawl, knitted or crocheted, which is given to persons who are ill, have suffered a loss or are in the midst of a crisis. They are also given to celebrate the birth of a child.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets weekly at 9:30 am on Tuesday's downstairs at Highlands Church. The first hour includes a bible study. At 10:30 am we crochet and knit the prayer shawls. Most of the work on the shawl is done at home, at your leisure, with no deadline. For more information contact Bev Neal at 805.227.4290 or email her.
