Women’s World Day of Prayer-An Ecumenical and Interdenominational Service takes place in churches, halls and homes all over the world, starting from the International Date Line and moving westwards on the first Friday of March every year.
Friday 3rd March in St Andrew’s Church, Malahide was the setting for WWDP 2017 written by the women of the Philippines and entitled “Am I being Unfair to You”.
We heard that God gives us abundant resources both human and material and that this is His provision for all of creation. It is God’s display of economic justice in contrast to the economy where the strong and powerful take God’s resources for themselves and their families.
We were delighted to see so many people from all our local churches for what has become a great tradition especially here in Malahide going back well over 35 years. It was a privilege to have the Filipino Choir from Beaumont Hospital with us and especially singing the ‘Our Father’ in their language, they made the evening very special for us.
Our thanks go to everyone for making the evening so enjoyable, especially our readers, projectionists, organist, flower arranger, church decorators, banner makers and refreshments team.
Next year this service will take place on the morning of Friday 2nd March in the Sacred Heart Church, Seabury and is written by the ladies of Surinam in South America entitled “All God’s Creation is Very Good”
