World Day of Prayer slated for March 5


An International World Day of Prayer meeting will be held on Friday, March 5, at 10 a.m. in St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

World Day of Prayer is an ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions coming together to observe a common day of prayer and action each year on the first Friday in March.

The theme for 2021 is “Build on a Strong Foundation” prepared by the World Day of Prayer Committee of Vanuatu and the World Day of Prayer USA Committee.

This year’s hosts will be the Catholic Daughters and St. Ann’s Society of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Masks will be required and social distancing observed.

An offering will be collected and proceeds will be used by the World Day of Prayer USA for grants to projects within the United States and internationally.

Although participants can worship together with limitations of 100 in attendance, the usual reception will not be held due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The public is invited to attend. For more information, contact Donna Durst at 830-992-1015.
