Women’s World Day of Prayer

The annual inter-denominational Women’s World Day of Prayer Service takes place next Friday, March 2nd in St Columb’s Church, Waterside at 8pm.

Women’s World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of prayer, organised and led by Christian women and it takes place each year on the first Friday in March. The service is written by a different country each year and that country then becomes the focus of the world’s prayers on the day itself. This year’s service has been prepared by the Christian women of Malaysia and it has the theme.‘Let Justice Prevail’.

Representatives of the various religious denominations in the city will be participating in next Friday’s service and the guest speaker will be Peter Sheridan, chief executive of the peace-building charity Co-operation Ireland. Everyone is very welcome to come along.
