News Release

********************

On Friday, March 1, 2012, the women of France invite you to join with them in the World Day of Prayer celebration praying under the theme: “I was a Stranger and you welcomed me.”


Each year the World day of Prayer service brings with it a feeling of curiosity. What will we learn about the theme and the focus country? What will challenge, inspire and encourage us?


“Our experiences of being a stranger and then being welcomed empower us to build connections and create community where all are welcomed.”


The women of France introduce us to six women on their committee. We learn their names and we learn that some have come from other parts of Europe and Africa. With this introduction we realize that the World Day of Prayer Committee of France is inclusive and representative of the multi-cultural complexity of France.


Please join us and invite your friends and family to attend the World Day of Prayer service and learn more about the culture and heritage of France. Join Christians in more than 170 countries around the world and 2,000 communities across Canada who will gather on the World Day of Prayer to pray and act in solidarity with the people of France.


A local World Day of Prayer Service will be held at:
HOLY NAME OF JESUS CHURCH
895 MEMORIAL DRIVE, NORTH BAY ONTARIO
MARCH 1, 2013 AT 7:00 P.M.
