World Youth Day, Let’s Pray

World Youth Day (WYD) is a gathering of young people ages 18-30 from all over the world with the Pope. It is a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church and a powerful moment of evangelization for the world of youth. It will be held from August 2-6, in Lisbon, Portugal. 5000 young people from Canada will be joining over 1 million people for World Youth Day. One of these 5000 young people helms from our very own Praish! Janna Ballesteros spoke about her desire to share Jesus with others in her testimony on April 23rd, 2023. Now at World Youth Day she will live out this missionary call Jesus placed on her heart. Lets pray for Janna and all the young people attending World Youth Day this year!

Alpha, Who Will You Invite?

The summer is a great time to connect with family and friends. It is also a great time to ask the Lord to put someone on your heart that you can invite to our Fall Alpha starting Sept 21st. The Good News is too important to keep to ourselves; who will you invite?
