*** IMPORTANT NOTICE:
In light of current public health challenges, all of our scheduled in-person prayer services are cancelled through the end of August. In the interim, our weekly prayer services will be conducted via Zoom sessions. (If you are not a registered member/volunteer and would like to participate in one of our Zoom prayer services, please email email@example.com with your request.) When we get closer to September, the DMIEC Council will reassess the situation and determine whether our community can safely resume in-person services and events or whether the period of cancellations will need to be extended further. Please check this home page and your email inbox regularly for any new DMIEC announcements. Registered members and volunteers are encouraged to click on the Prayer Aid tab to see the prayer aid that had been prepared for this Sunday. To see the readings for any particular Sunday, go to the Calendar and click on that Sunday’s date. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support as we make difficult, but necessary decisions in this challenging time. Be healthy and safe!
Our August 2 First Sunday Collection recipient is Primary Health Care Homeless Support Services. For more information, please click here.
Before you ask DMIEC to send an email to the membership, please review the guidelines available under the Quick Info & Links menu. Thank you!
