FREE Prayer Circle….

The Power of Prayer Can Move Mountains, Work Miracles, Achieve Serenity and Give You Strength.

With Fr. Billy Clark/Denise Tally/Patrick Clark, every Fourth Sunday, 1:00 PM.

Prayer is a universal way for you to connect to your soul and communicate with a higher power. Whether you are new to the ways of prayer or perhaps you pray daily / or you might have prayed as a child but may have gradually lost the habit / or maybe you feel your prayers are never answered.

This group is open to all religions & spiritual backgrounds.

Join us as we explore the power of coming together to Pray for help, guidance, health, healing and answers.

We gather to pray for ourselves/our loved ones/the world.
