Shawls ... made for centuries universal and embracing,
symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God.
They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify.
Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles...

Our prayer shawls are knitted by hand by parishioners and weaved with prayers of peace and hope.
Before we gift the prayer shawls, Fr. Bill blesses each shawl to lend comfort and solace to the recipient.
The prayer shawl serves as a heartfelt, warming embrace by the entire OLM community in wishing the recipient well-being and love.
