‘World Day of Prayer’ will be observed in Clooney Hall, in Londonderry, on Friday 6th March at 7.30pm.

The Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical organisation and this year it will be celebrated in more than 170 countries. It will begin in Samoa, with prayers in native languages, and finish more than 36 hours later in American Samoa, having travelled the globe through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas.

The 2020 service has been prepared by women from Zimbabwe who are encouraging others to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have affected Zimbabwe for many years. The service reflects the challenges they face and the aspirations they have for the future, as they encourage others to ‘Rise, take your mat and walk’ with them towards full reconciliation.

While Day of Prayer is organised by women it is also celebrated by men and children.
