Friday - Sunday

Come for a weekend with fellow knitters as we joyfully share in the care of God’s people by using the gifts of our hands to knit or crochet sacred prayer shawls. Whether you will be making your first shawl or if you are a seasoned disciple, you will experience helpful assistance and wonderful fellowship in a beautiful, prayerful setting. Our prayers and blessings are woven into the shawls as our hands work to fashion them. Shawls are then given to people for comfort, healing or in celebration.  Join the Holy Knitters Prayer-Shawl Ministry for a spring weekend open to all who have basic knitting and crocheting skills.

A detailed list of required materials will be sent upon registration. Space is limited.

All retreats begin with supper at 6:00pm on the day of arrival and conclude with lunch at noon on the day of departure. Deposit $100. Balance due 14 days prior to the start of the retreat. Resident with private room $305; Semi-private room $280; Commuter with meals $220; Commuter without meals $175.
