World Day of Prayer service to be held in Rockwood

ROCKWOOD - The World Day of Prayer is an international event that has been connecting people in a meaningful way for almost a century.

Despite being planned years in advance World Day of Prayer services seem to anticipate major events, like the refugee crisis (France 2013), the Arab Spring (Egypt 2014) and the winding down of the U.S. embargo against Cuba (Cuba 2016), organizers state.

“The secret to this depth and insight is the women who plan and write each World Day of Prayer service,” they say. “Too often, women have the most intimate experiences of armed conflict, violence, social injustice, and human rights violations.”

This year’s World Day of  Prayer comes from women of the Philippines.

On March 3, Christians in more than 170 countries and in 2,000 communities across Canada will gather to learn about, pray, and celebrate in solidarity with the women of the Philippines through the World Day of Prayer.

A local World Day of Prayer service will be held at St. John’s Anglican Church in Rockwood at 1pm on March 3.

Filipino refreshments will be served following the service organizers state.  In Canada, the World Day of Prayer is coordinated by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada.
