beautifully crafted lap robes
& prayer shawls made by members of the organization, United Methodist
chapter, the Metropolitan District of United Methodist Women, is affiliated
with Mount Calvary/Saint Mark’s United
Methodist Church at 49-55 Edgcombe Avenue.
colorful robes & prayer shawls were made by United Methodist members from
world. The daughter of Former Chapter
President, Tommy Douglas, arranged for them to be brought to
Isabella. Four lovely ladies from the
Metropolitan Chapter were kind enough to deliver
them – each carefully wrapped for their lucky new owner. These visiting “angels”were Dorothy
Robertson, Dorothy Hamilton, May Ott and Marcella Bond.
Some of the
lap robes had messages. One such message read “Crocheted by hand and tread with
Prayers of Love and Hope, the Prayer Shawl is a gift to you. May it bring blessings of comfort, gifts of
warmth and may you know that you are loved.”
This lovely shawl brings a double warmth – that of the shawl
and that of the warm sentiment.
We thank the
women of the United Methodist Women for their lovely gifts and their generous
