The Interfaith Community of Clallam County announced its schedule for the 2018 Spiritual Read Port Angeles and Sequim.

Starting Sunday, the public is invited to join the free events. Sign up is required for the groups and can be completed by emailing interfaithclallamcounty @gmail.com.

Your request and contact information will be directed to the facilitator for that group, event organizers said.
