Prayer Shawl

Looking for a new way to pray? 

Prayer shawl ministers, experienced and novice, create beautiful shawls to bring warmth and comfort to people in many in life’s transitions. Prayers of blessing, (“May God’s grace be upon these shawls, warming comforting, enfolding and embracing…”) are with each shawl. 

How do I recieve a Prayer Shawl?

If you or a loved one is experiencing a challenging time in your life, The Basilica community would like to support you through our Prayer Shawl Ministry.

Prayer Shawls can warm, comfort, enfold, and embrace you--creating a sacred place and a safe haven, for difficult times.

To request a Prayer Shawl, contact Cathy Edwards.
