Faith in Action

 

This is a program initiated by the Laurel Area Partnership on Aging and Latrobe Area Hospital involving all faiths within the greater Latrobe area.

Every third Sunday, a deacon leads our prayers in worship and the cash offering is designated for the use of the deacons in providing aid to members and others.
