*** IMPORTANT NOTICE:
In light of current public health challenges, all of our scheduled prayer services are cancelled through the end of August. 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. You 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!
