The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement which brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year. It has been held in Canada since 1812, when women first encouraged each other to engage in personal prayer and take leadership in communal prayer within their mission auxiliaries and associations.
The 2017 service was written by the World Day of Prayer Committee of The Phillipines. The theme is “Am I being unfair to you?” Participants will learn from women in the Philippines, a country on the front lines of climate change, foreign mining and resources, insurgency and social upheaval due to migration.
The organizing committee in Squamish have extended an invitation to other Faith groups to join them in this year’s service. It will take place at St. John the Divine Anglican Church, 1930 Diamond Road at 2 p.m.
A great way to come together in prayer with our Christian neighbours.
