OXFORD – The Church Women United (CWU) of Oxford and the World Day of Prayer USA Committee have collaborated to present a World Day of Prayer, at the New York State Veterans’ Home, in the recreation room, this Friday at 1:30 p.m. All are invited to this very special service with a Chilean theme. There will be stories to teach about the women of Chile, slides, music and singing. Complimentary refreshments will be provided by the Veterans’ Home.
This is the largest ecumenical movement in the world organized and led by women, which started in the USA in 1884. Around the globe, more than 3 million women, men and children, in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer on March 4. This year, the service in Oxford will be sponsored by the women of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, under the direction of Grace DeBrita, CWU president. Men and women from the community are encouraged to join in with the veterans, in this joyous event, at the beautiful new facility.
