On Friday March 1 we join our voices in prayer with Christians throughout the world. World Day of Prayer began as a grassroots women’s mission movement in the 19th century and continues to unite people today. This year’s prayer service was prepared by the women of Slovenia and has the theme “Come – Everything is Ready!” So Come! We are ready to pray together for justice in our world. Join our brothers and sisters from the local ecumenical churches, here at St. Francis Parish at 2pm on March 1. Fellowship will follow in the hall. A free will offering will be taken up for the women of Slovenia.
