Here is an opportunity to join with others in a circle of walking prayer for healing and resiliency. It will be a group process of praying for ourselves, our communities, our nation and our world. Be assured that mobility limitations will not be an issue. Please RSVP by October 1 to Janet Kwantes: firstname.lastname@example.org, 780 410 0365. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available
