Rev. Dr. Ellen Redcliffe began this ministry at Parkwoods in 2009. Gathering together a group of knitters, we received our needles, wool and pattern and started knitting the shawls with our love and prayers.
To date, we have presented 50 prayer shawls to Parkwoods people and others known to us who are going through a difficult time. As we continue knitting, we give thanks for this gift of ministry that Rev. Ellen shared with us knowing that God’s love and the love of the Parkwoods congregation embraces each recipient.
