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. In Canada, the day is coordinated by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada, which includes representatives from 11 church partners. This year’s WDP featured country is The Bahamas, and the theme is “Jesus said to them, ‘Do you know what I have done to you?’” (John 13: 1- 17, NRSV)

World Day of Prayer ecumenical celebrations will be held on Friday, March 6, and all are welcome to attend.
