Dear Friend,

This week Christians around the world observe the most solemn week in the life of the church: Holy Week. We commemorate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Here is what we have planned at PWC for Holy Week:
Good Friday Service: April 2 at 7:00 pm: on Facebook Live or in-person.
Holy Saturday Morning Retreat: (in person only) with Andy Sullivan on The Prayer of Presence: April 3 from 9:30 am–12:00 pm.
Easter Sunday: April 4, we will have two services: 7:00 am Sunrise Service Outside and 10:00 am Inside on Facebook Live or in-person.

To watch online, find Facebook at the top of our home page at: PWC website. We look forward to having you participate in our Holy Week activities in-person or online.

Our last Lenten Contemplative Prayer Session is tonight at 6:00 pm on Zoom only. 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. Here is the link: ZOOM LINK.

On Friday, March 19, Father Mike Lessard’s dad, Joe Lessard, passed away at the age of 94. Joe, a deacon in the Catholic Church, was a true and holy man of God, may he rest in the everlasting peace and joy of Jesus. We pray for the healing comfort for the Lessard family. Here is a link to Deacon Joe’s obituary: https://pastoralcareaz.org/joseph-a-lessard.
