Dear Friend,

Join us tonight at 7:00 In Person or on Facebook for a Night of Prayer in Honor of National Day of Prayer. It will be a time for prayer, music, and praise. Father Dale, Pastor Mark, Deacon Cheryl Armstrong, and John Nichols will be leading us. We especially will be praying for our country. To watch online, find Facebook button at the top of our home page at: PWC website.

The National Day of Prayer is tomorrow, Thursday, May 6 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm in the church. Please make plans to join us. Deacon Cheryl Armstrong will be leading this prayer event. Our theme is: Lord Pour Out Your Love, Life and Liberty.

This Sunday, May 9 is Mother’s Day. We have a leather book available for you to write the names of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, stepmother etc., both living and deceased. We will honor our moms on Mother’s Day with a special blessing! Bring your mom!

A Memorial for a Loved One: Several years ago, we gave our community the opportunity to memorialize loved ones by placing their names on the windows in the church and in the chapel. Now, we would like to make another opportunity available. We will be placing names of deceased loved ones on the front window behind the Jesus statue. The cost will be $250 per line. A combination of 30 letters and/or spaces can be used on each line. All donations are tax deductible and will be used to pay down the mortgage on our building. Checks should be made out to PWC. You can download the memorial form here:

“Contemplative prayer is not so much a way to find God as a way of resting in him whom we have found, who loves us, who is near to us, who comes to us to draw us to himself.” Thomas Merton on Contemplative Prayer. Come join us Wednesday, May 12 @ 6:00pm for Contemplative Prayer. We will meet both in person and Zoom using the link below. Participants will be guided through an experience of Leccio Divina leading to the Prayer of Quiet. Looking ahead through the summer we will continue to gather for prayer the second Wednesday of each month, also at 6:00pm.
