World Day of Prayer 2014

Posted on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 12:45 pm

Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 7.
This year, the women of the WDP Egypt Committee invite us into a time of worship with the words of the prophet Isaiah; “I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.”
With these words as backdrop, the public is invited to learn about Egypt’s history and rich cultural diversity.
This year’s service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 7 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 508 North Third Street in Louisiana.
Following the World Day of Prayer service in the sanctuary, participants are invited to go next door to the Seton Center for a light lunch and fellowship.
Invite your friends, family and communities of faith to join the women of Egypt in prayer and song to support ecumenical efforts toward justice, peace, healing and wholeness.  The annual offering supports the work of World Day of Prayer USA and helps meet the needs of families in Egypt and around the world who are victims of many forms of poverty, violence and injustice.
World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March.
