This month’s The Dalles Aglow Lighthouse meeting is Monday, March 18, at 6:45 p.m. at Harvest Foursquare Church, 2500 Old Dufur Road, The Dalles. The group welcomes back Prophet John Mark Pool. Pool is co-founder of Word to the World Ministries. Based in Baton Rouge, La., he is called to take the apostolic/prophetic five-fold ministry message to pastors and church leaders across the USA and around the world.
He and his wife, Sandy were both ordained as prophets by James Goll and minister with Encounters Network Ministries. Bring a snack, if you can. Contact Wendy Wham at 541-340-0026 for more info.
St. Alphonsus Church
With the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, St. Alphonsus Church in Dufur will have Mass at 7 p.m. Saturday nights, St. Mary’s Maupin’s Mass will be Saturday at 5 p.m., the exception being Easter Sunday when St. Alphonsus will have Mass on Easter at 8:30 a.m. and Maupin at 11 a.m. The 7 p.m. Saturday night Mass will continue until October. The reason for the change is that Father Fabian Nwokorie has four parishes, two in Sherman County and two in Wasco County and they trade times.
Pastor Tim Vance shares the message in a traditional 8:30 a.m. and contemporary 11 a.m. worship service Sunday. In between, all are welcome for Coffee Connection starting at 9:30, and a congregational meeting at 9:45.
