The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement of Christian women of many traditions, and from over 170 countries and regions, who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.
Through the World Day of Prayer, women around the world affirm their faith in Jesus Christ and share their hopes and fears, their joys and sorrows, and their opportunities and needs.
Every year, a different country is chosen to pick the theme and the prayers to be used in the services celebrated around the world.
This year (2013), the theme and prayers for the World Day of Prayer were chosen by the women of France.
The theme they chose: “I was a stranger and you welcomed me”.
The celebration of prayer is held on the first Friday of March each year.
This year in Barriere, it will be hosted by St. George’s Catholic Church, on Barriere Town Road.
The service will start at 10 a.m. and will be followed by light refreshments.
Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
