World Day of Prayer here at St. Ben's March 4th

World Day of Prayer 2016

Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 4, 2016.  This year the women of Cuba call us into worship considering the words “Receive children, receive me.”  With these words as backdrop, we are invited to learn about Cuba’s history and rich cultural diversity.  

World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God’s realm.  Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe.  Each year a different country’s committee serves as writer of the worship service.

The gathering for the Eggertsville/Snyder faith communities will be held at St. Benedict’s Church on Friday March 4 at 1 p.m.  Everyone is invited to participate.  Refreshments will follow.
