The annual World Day of Prayer will be marked this Friday (March 5) and the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada is inviting Kamloopsians to take part in the online service that will include more than 1,100 Canadian communities.
The 2021 World Day of Prayer will feature a number of local participant leaders and will also draw on video and other materials prepared on the Pacific island of Vanuatu, including music, reflections and information.
Donations received through the World Day of Prayer will be used to help women and children via projects to be undertaken in Canada and throughout the world.
All regions share in the grants, with consideration given to greatest need.
Through World Day of Prayer donations, the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada has distributed more than $2.5 million in the past 35 years. Receipts are issued for donations of $20 or more.
Address for mailing cheques or online donation is available online at www.wicc.org.
