World Day of Prayer: Thank you to all who attended and/or leant-a-hand for the World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 3rd. This year the service was prepared by the World Day of Prayer - Taiwan. Between 50 and 60 people attended and this is a great increase over past years! We enjoyed “Afternoon Tea” and fellowship following the service. An offering of $745.00 was raised, which is wonderful. Funds raised by WDP support social justice projects. In Canada, these WDP grants are distributed by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada [WICC]. WICC is a national ecumenical organization with a mission to empower Christians to pursue justice, peace, and reconciliation standing together in prayer and action.
