NEW YEAR’S DAY PRAYER SERVICE IN PRELACY CHURCHES
For the past few years it has become a wonderful tradition for Prelacy Churches to open their doors on New Year’s Day to give our faithful the opportunity to begin the New Year with prayer. In keeping with this tradition, on Friday, January 1, 2016, a prayer service will be held in all Prelacy Churches. Please contact your local parish for service time.
