St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church along with co-host the Salvation Army invites you to the annual World Day of Prayer Friday evening. One of the organizers Dona O’Brien says this year the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada theme is Come Everything is Ready. She explains the Council’s mission is to empower Christians to pursue justice, peace and reconciliation by standing together in prayer and action. Their goals are to connect people with a passion for justice, to bring Christians together in prayer with action and to restore hope to women touched by injustice. O’Brien adds these goals are achieved by inviting women from around the world to share their experiences and concerns.
World Day of Prayer will be celebrated Friday evening at 7 at St. Ann’s Church on Centre Street to pray in solidarity with the host country Slovenia one of the smallest countries in Europe.
