WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
Friday, March & at 2:00 PM
The theme for this year’s service is “God’s Wisdom Provides new Understanding.” written by the women of Guyana. This celebration takes place throughout the world in Christian Churches. This year we are hosting this ecumenical service on Friday, March 7 at 2:00 PM
Wednesday, February 27th at 7:30 PM
This is an opportunity to spend some time in peace and quiet, to reflect upon how we are responding to our call to be sons and daughters of God. Recognizing the fact that we are “good people” we also accept the fact that good people can sin. Through an examination of conscience we face those sins, admit them and are reconciled to God. For those who wish, individual confessions will be celebrated after the service. We encourage you to take advantage of this celebration.
