Knitting Ministry Do you knit or crochet? Are you interested in joining a knitting group with others from UUBRidge?

A knitting ministry is a group of friends that will meet occasionally to knit prayer/comfort shawls and lap blankets for UUBRidge Members and friends.

Why are they called “prayer” shawls? Because they hold our “prayers” of positive energy for the person who receives a shawl.

Do shawls make a difference? YES! Recipients in other congregations say things like “when I go for chemo I take my shawl and feel that I am not alone.” Another comment “thank you for the beautiful shawl. It is a reminder of the comfort and support that Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge have given me.”

If you are interested, please contact Kathryn Treanor at
