A Thank You from Newtown CT
The Shepherd of the Valley Prayer Shawl Ministry received a “Thank You” note form the the Prayer Shawl Ministry Coordinator of St. Rose of Lima Church in Newtown, CT for their act of kindness and caring.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry was blessed with three extra shawls that were not designated at the time, so when the Newtown tragedy struck, we prayed over the shawls and sent them to this Catholic church, which had at least 7 members who were killed in the shooting. We were so moved to be able to send them to the church, as we usually have no extra shawls, so we felt it was God’s doing. It was a small gesture for us to reach out, making us feel better somewhat, also.
