Trinity Anglican Church, Lambeth, Ontario
Among the outreach programs is a Prayer Shawl ministry with the church's knitting group, The Knitters of Hope, knitting the Prayer Shawls. Shawls, which have been made for centuries, are universal and embracing. They wrap, enfold, comfort and give solace. Comments from those who have received a shawl said they have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles. They often feel like they have been given a hug from God.
