World Day of Prayer

Event Coordinator (for St. Stephen's Only) - Stephanie Rotsaert

World Day of Prayer is a worldwide, ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.

  • It is initiated and carried out by women in more than 170 countries and regions.
  • It is symbolized by an annual day of celebration observed on the first Friday in March to which all people are welcome.
  • It brings women of different races, cultures and traditions together in fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.
  • Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and have immeasurable influence in the world.
  • The motto of World Day of Prayer is "Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action."
