Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 4.
The women of Chile have written the service around the theme, “How many loaves have you?” They ask us to enter a process that draws us into the Bible, into the context of Chile and into the real situations of our lives and communities. Together, we are asked to respond to what we have and how we share it with others. In the past year, Chile has been challenged by a devastating earthquake and the collapse of a mine in which many miners were trapped.
Again, we are reminded to share our bread and to receive the bread that is shared with us. On the World Day of Prayer, let us reach out our hands and hearts to touch the lives of sisters and brothers in Chile and around the world.
This year’s service will be held at the Pope John Paul II Catholic Church at 353 S. Pagosa Blvd. The worship service will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by a luncheon. Please bring a salad and bread to share. Many churches in the Pagosa area have come together to sponsor and present the service.
