It seems every week we have more and more members of our community returning for Sunday service, this past Sunday was no exception. It was so good to see so many members of our community returning! People talked about receiving their second vaccine for Covid-19 and they felt more comfortable being out and about. With that said, we only want you to be present on Sunday when you feel comfortable and safe.

Lent is a time for reflection and preparedness. It is a time to fully and consciously enter the Paschal Mystery. All are invited to join us for Contemplative Prayer each Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm tonight through March 31. We come together to Listen to God’s Word (Lectio Divina) followed by a time of communing with and resting in Holy Presence. It is a graced experience to truly be with God, and one another, for the greater sake of our world. We will both gather at PWC and via Zoom. Here is the link: ZOOM LINK.

Even with the pandemic we have a lot going on, we are still doing lots of ministering here at PWC! Right now, we are only scheduling month to month. Check out our calendar for the rest of March: Calendar of Events.

Thank you for your giving! During these trying times of Covid-19 your tithing allows the essential and vital work of PWC to continue and flourish.

May our Lord continue to bless those who are struggling with the aftereffects of Covid-19 and those who are suffering with other medical conditions. We pray for their healing.

See you tonight at 7:00 either in person or on Facebook Live.

Love,
Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
