Dear Friend,

Join us tonight at 7:00, either in person or on Facebook Live, for our final series on our Lenten theme: Love Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace. We will be reflecting on Grant that I May Not Seek to be Consoled as to Console and on St. Francis’ understanding of poverty of spirit. Fr. Dale and Kevin will be presenting. John will also lead us in song. You can view this presentation on Facebook Live at PWC website and find the Facebook button at the top of our home page.

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.

Our Prayer Retreat on Zoom is this Saturday, March 27th at 10:00 am with Deacons Cheryl Armstrong and John Null. Destination: Complete Dependence on God. Join us on Zoom at: ZOOM LINK.
