Prayer Shawl Ministry
Fairhaven’s Prayer Shawl Ministry got it’s start under the auspices of the Fairhaven United Women in Faith in the summer of 2010. It quickly spread to include other members of the congregation who were interested in using their needlework skills to support this outreach activity.
The shawls are provided to individuals who are in need of comfort due to illness or loss; for new babies; for newly married couples. The shawls have been sent worldwide – from the Philippines to Great Britain and across the United States. And yes, some have been shared with our furry family members as they approach the Rainbow Bridge.
Currently we meet monthly using Zoom as well as in person. We welcome all knitters, crocheters and anyone interested in sewing on labels.
