Our ministry is dedicated to making shawls, blankets, and chemo caps that are distributed to those who have been recently diagnosed with a serious illness, people who are frightened at what they are about to face, people who need extra courage and strength to trust in God’s plan.
Most of our members crochet their items but if you prefer to knit that is fine. We ask that our shawls/throws are approximately 30 by 48 inches and that they are soft, cozy, and warm, have tassels and/or fringe. The items are made with prayers offered for healing, strength, faith, and comfort for the recipient. Each is blessed and has some Knots of Love tied in the tassels before they are delivered. These knots represent the prayers we have said for the recipient.
We meet at St. Peter Church in DeLand on the first Tuesday of each month at 3 P.M. in Saint Teresa Hall. As we have continued to distribute our shawls, throws and caps we have heard of so many special stories that we are sure that this ministry has touched so many lives and help in the healing.
Donations of knitting yarn are welcome, including monetary donations to help in the purchase of bags & labels, which are greatly appreciated.
