Prayer Service on the Land

To build community and encourage people to utilize our future church property, ministry groups and community members are welcome to host prayer services and events at the 1221 Yates Store Road property.

Our Priest or Deacon may be able to attend the service. Please ask if they are available to assist or you can have a simple gathering for prayer if they are not available. There is a Statue of Mary, the Stations of the Cross, ample parking, shade, seating, and beautiful surroundings. A port-a-potty is available upon request, depending on size and expected length of prayer service.

If your ministry or other Mother Teresa group would like to schedule an event, please contact the parish office at (919) 623-1751 or

Thank you for your commitment to our community and organizing an event on this beautiful piece of property that will someday be our future church site!
