The Prayer Shawl Ministry was begun at Oxford United Methodist Church by Charlotte Krauss in October of 2005. In the first 18 months, 53 prayer shawls were made by seven knitters for chosen recipients who were presented with a prayer and prayer letter, along with the shawl.

The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 1:00PM in room 202 of the Educational building of Oxford United Methodist Church. We meet to pray and knit shawls for people who may be experiencing a loss, an illness, or also celebrating a birth , a marriage or just needs to know someone cares about them. Please give us the name of anyone who is in need of a prayer shawl .

This is an interdenominational group reaching beyond the congregation. Knitting or crocheting instructions are provided. Financial contributions of any amount to purchase yarn are welcome.

If you would like to participate, contact Charlotte at (513) 523-2537 or the church office at (513) 523-5115.
