||We meet the second Thursday of each month from Sept. to June inclusive. The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies our thoughts and prayers for the receiver. Shawl makers begin with prayers and blessings for the recipients. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered by Father Yves before the shawl is sent on its way. These shawls can be used during times of solace or celebration. The shawls are passed on hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart. If you are interested in joining us or you know of someone who is in need of a shawl, please contact Sharen Reynaert at 613-837-0013.
