We will also have some snacks and refreshments and an evening meal of chili/stew and Bannock. This day is the result of our listening to the people of our community as they spoke of their needs, and it has been prepared and organized by the people of the community. Please pray for us as we gather as the Body of Christ, intent on living out our mission of love and forgiveness as shared with us in and through the Holy Spirit! ****Please note that, because of this Day of Prayer there will be no Saturday evening mass at Our Lady of Peace Parish on August 27th!
