With the holy seasons of Holy Week and Passover upon us, we have compiled a list of all services at the various local places of worship in town in the coming weeks. Whether you are a weekly attendee or you’ve been away for a while and seeking inspiration and a community of faith, look no further than the many opportunities for worship, prayer and song in one of the many faith-filled communities throughout town.  

A blessed Easter and Passover to all!
