Worship Without Walls-   Every Sunday at 5pm through September 1st at Shadow Ranch Park, on Vanowen between Shoup and Fallbrook on the north side of the street. Our purpose  for WWW has always been to take our worship and our witness outside into God's creation. This year we would also like to emphasize the availability of an alternative time for our parishioners to worship with Prince of Peace during the busy summer months.  See George Packer for more information or email him at praywithoutwalls@gmail.com.
  • Many thanks to Eagle Scout candidate, Bill Simon, on his outstanding work in creating the attractive benches around the trees on our patio and refinishing the existing benches to complete a beautifully consolidated look in our outdoor area. Bill was confirmed following our most recent confirmation class and is the grandson of parishioner, Mary Laccinole.
  • ECW sends a big THANK YOU - to everyone involved in the rummage sale. There was a wonderful turnout of volunteers, which made everything so much easier, especially the pack-up. It couldn't happen without you! Thank you, Boude, for the use of the choir room, both for storage and display purposes. Sandi & ECW Board

Are you ready to light up your life? 
The 2019 Bishop's Concert will feature Debby Boone!
Bishop John Harvey Taylor and Canon Kathy O'Connor are pleased to invite you, as a member of the diocesan community, to the second annual Bishop's Concert, featuring Grammy Award-winning singer, actor and author Debby Boone, on Friday, October 11 at the episcopal residence, located at 3435 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena.

Debby Boone is known for the 1977 hit "You Light Up My Life, her 1980 country song "Are You On the Road to Lovin' Me Again," and albums of country music, contemporary Christian songs, and songs for children. In 2005 she released Reflections Of Rosemary, an album featuring music that her mother-in-law, Rosemary Clooney, performed as well as other songs that Boone felt reflected the woman her family knew. Boone also has appeared in many musical theater productions, television series and movies, and has written several children's books illustrated by her husband, the Rev. Gabriel Ferrer, vicar of St. Martin's Church, Winnetka.

Gates will be opened at 6 p.m. and refreshments will be served before the performance, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Valet parking will be available. Tickets are $75. To reserve your tickets, visit https://www.edlaclergy.org/clergy-conf/bishops-concert. Proceeds will support diocesan ministries.
