Year of Prayer: In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year 'Pilgrims of Hope', 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis. There is a particular focus on the Our Father, and this presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the basics of prayer. The Year of Prayer,  the Holy Father explained is dedicated "to rediscovering the great value and absolute need for prayer, prayer in personal life, in the life of the Church; prayer in the world." Starting Sunday May 5 from 10:00 to 10:45am we will explore the Year of Prayer. Sessions will be held in the Chapel.  There will be sign-up sheet in the Gathering area. Please contact Deacon Owen with any questions.  All are welcome to learn and explore the Year of Prayer..
