Trinity Episcopal Church distributes shawls of kindness

From Louisiana-

Members of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church’s Prayer Shawl ministry recently delivered the first set of handmade fleece shawls to members of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

As part of the Fleece for the Police program, officers will carry the shawls in their vehicle trunks and distribute to anyone in need.

According to church member Becky Williams, the ministry is part of a larger effort that was started in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut in 1998 by Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo, two graduates of the 1997 Women’s Leadership Institute at The Hartford Seminary, and it grew from there.
