A Prayer Shawl ceremony was held at Wesley Village on Thursday, March 5. More than 75 hand-knit prayer shawls, lap robes and afghans were donated to the hospice patients of Masonicare Home Health and Hospice. The items were made by a group of residents at Wesley Village who call themselves ‘The Wesley Village Prayer Shawl Knitters’. Their goal is to provide comfort and warmth to hospice patients.

The ceremony, which marked the 11th anniversary of this program, was organized by Barbara Quinn, Director of Volunteer Services at Wesley Village, and Sue Laughlin, Volunteer Coordinator for the Brookfield at Newtown branch of Masonicare Home Health and Hospice. It featured a candle-lighting, readings and blessing of the shawls. Over 3,000 shawls have been donated since 2004.
