March Events After Spring Break!

As we pass the halfway point of the semester, PCC’s got a few events in March before a very busy April! Check them out below:

On March 22, PCC will have another Book Group discussion, this time on Orson Scott Card’s Speaker for the Dead. As usual, we’ll be meeting in the Brennan Room at noon. Please RSVP here on the Facebook event so we know how much pizza to order!

On March 26, in place of our usual Dinner Dialogue at 6 PM in the Brennan Room, we will be having Dr. Edward Wierenga, Chair of the Department of Religion and Classics at UR, give a lecture to any who are interested in attending. The lecture is titled “Divine Foreknowledge, Providence, and Human Free Will” and will include a question and answer period for all those who want to know more. RSVP here on Facebook!

Keep your eyes peeled for all of our upcoming April events!

End of Semester Events!

We hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving Break! Here are the last few events that PCC will be having this semester:

Sunday, December 8 will be PCC’s annual Lessons and Carols service, featuring students from PCC singing in our yearly Christmas Choir. We hope you can join us for this special service!

Sunday, December 15, we will still be having service at 5! It will be a slightly lower-key service, but it will include communion and Christmas cookie decorating immediately afterwards. Feel free to join us for one event or the other- we know Reading Period is a busy time for everyone!

We wish everyone the best of luck on their final exams, and we wish everyone a peaceful, restful, and wonderful Christmas break!
