Right here in Sudbury, Diane Ricketson is preparing for an Ecumenical World Day of Prayer Service. Ricketson and the Calvary Baptist Church will be joining women around the globe March 1, participating with readings, scriptures and prayer.
“(Women) are enriched by the faith experience of Christians of other countries and cultures; share the burdens of other people and pray with them and for them; become aware of their own talents and use them in the service of God's world,” a media release about the prayer day stated.
“Prayer and action are inseparable and both have immeasurable influence in the world.”
Ricketson is leading the service, which includes St. Paul's United, Salvation Army, Trinity Lutheran, Our Lady of Hope, St. Anthony's Parish and her home church.
While the day is celebrated internationally by women, men are also welcome to attend. Everyone, even those not part of the churches, are welcome to join in prayer. For more information, visit Calvary Baptist March 1 at 1:30 p.m.
St. Mark's United Church, located at 45 Walford Rd., is also hosting World Prayer Day services.
Stop by the church at 1 p.m. for more information.
