Womens World Day of Prayer

Womens World Day of PrayerIn the afternoon The Women’s World Day of Prayer Service took place in the cathedral focusing on France and both the experience of welcome that many received as refugees and immigrants but also the challenges of welcoming the stranger in our midst. It was made especially pertinent when two Telugu-speaking women saw people heading into church and joined the congregation for worship and food afterwards. It made the central message of the service and Elizabeth George’s sermon especially pertinent.
