United in Prayer Day
St John the Evangelist
March 16th 9:00 a.m. – 1:30

We are excited and grateful to Mary Helen McCay for hosting the Untied Day in Prayer at her parish this year.  As usual we ask the following:
1. that you bring a snack or breakfast item to share
2. that you bring your lunch
3. a suggested donation of $10 to the Contemplative Outreach scholarship fund
We look forward to gathering together for this meaningful and beneficial opportunity to pray in unity with our Contemplative sisters and brothers around the world in order to change to world.  The schedule for the day is attached.
