WORLD DAY OF PRAYER 2020 – TAKE YOUR MAT AND WALK @ St Pius V Church

Friday, March 6th, at 1 pm

St Pius V Church, 410 Colvil St W, Cannon Falls, MN

Men, women and children are all invited! World Day of Prayer (www.wdp-usa.org ) is a world-wide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March.

The first organized “day of prayer for the world” was held in Canada on January 9, 1920 and in the United States on February 20, 1920.  Thus year, the women of the World Day of Prayer (WDP) Committee of Zimbabwe call us all to worship and to learn about Zimbabwe’s history and rich culture. Let us walk in faith and prayerful action!

St Pius V Church invites you to join them for a light lunch following the Prayer Service.

CANCELLED due to the Coronavirus!  The Cannon Falls Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to our 21st Annual Children’s Easter Hunt on Saturday, April 11th, at 10:00 am in the Cannon Falls City Parking Lot behind Cannon Valley Specialties.  The Easter Bunny will be there for sure.  Remember, he arrived in a Fire Truck last year!  There will also be fun events to participate in around the City Parking Lot.

Area Chamber Members who are participating in this event will have the numbers for their candy bags listed on their front windows or doors.  A business map will also be available for each family at check in.  The Easter Hunt Numbers will be color-coded on the posters, the business map, and the numbers themselves.  We hope this helps make the hunt a little easier.

We are asking that participants be 10 years old or younger.  Children should be accompanied by an adult during this event for safety purposes.

This event is supporting the Cannon Falls Food Shelf, so we ask that everyone bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation for this organization.
