The annual World Day of Prayer is taking place Saturday here in Thompson.
The original World Day of Prayer took place back in 1922, and was started by women in both Canada and the United States who had endured a war in which they had no control.
The purpose of the World Day of Prayer is prayer with immediate application.
The theme for this year’s day is “all God’s creation is very good”, with the focus of prayers being on environmental issues, in solidarity with the women of Suriname. The day will be celebrated in over 1,200d communities across Canada, and in 113 languages around the world.
The event will be held at Saint Lawrence Church, starting at 2:00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
