Lucas Tomson the Pastor of Our Lady of the Valley, Okanogan WA. Fr. Lucas Tomson will lead us on a journey back to the fourth and fifth centuries.

The Day of Prayer begins with a Rosary at 9:00 a.m. and will include two conferences, confessions, Mass and lunch. After lunch there will be the second conference and the day will close with Adoration at 3:00 PM. Cost for the Day of Prayer is $35 per person, or $45 with the use of a private room.
