Prayer Shawl Ministry

Since 2005, a group of Good Shepherd members have been gathering to knit and crochet Prayer Shawls. The group asks God to bless a completed shawl before it is given to someone as a reminder of God’s presence in times of need or joy.


Prayer Shawl Ministry dates and meeting places are printed in the monthly church newsletter, weekly bulletins, and church schedules appearing in Decorah newspapers and on the Good Shepherd website. The group currently meets from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month, September through May. We welcome all interested knitters and crocheters to join in our ministry, and we welcome the names of those who would appreciate receiving a shawl.
