World Day of Prayer At Ecumenical Parish
The world Day of Prayer celebration will be held Friday March 6 at 11:00 AM.
The study is on The Bahamas this year. The women of The Bahamas tell us about the struggles and triumphs of their communities. It is not a place of all pleasure, as some might believe. The women of The Bahamas will lead us to consider how we might show God's radical love to others. Jesus models this when He puts His own comfort aside to wash the disciples' feet in John 13, asking "Do you understand what I have done for you?"
Please plan to attend Friday March 6 at 11 AM, at Canton Ecumenical Parish, 103 North Center St. Canton. There will be a light lunch following the program.
