2021 World Day of Prayer - March 5, 2021

2021 World Day of Prayer

The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement which brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year. The motto of the World Day of Prayer movement is Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action. Through our participation in the World Day of Prayer, we affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence on the world.

The World Day of Prayer is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of March. A different participating country writes the service each year and the 2021 service has been prepared by the South Pacific island country of Vanuatu. Because of restrictions placed on gatherings during the Pandemic, World Day of Prayer celebrations will be held by watching the Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada video and can be accessed by going to wicc.org and clicking on the One Hour World Day of Prayer 2021 Vanuatu Service Video button. The video will be available until September 2021.

If anyone would like to make a donation they may do so by donating online at wicc.org or mailing a cheque to: WICC, 47 Queen's Park Cres E., Toronto, ON, M5S 2C3

After three visioning meetings (with more to come) we, as a parish, are now at a point where we must analyse and consider our options for ministry which we have available and can financially support. We must think about what option we would be interested in exploring to ensure our parish continues to move forward and thrive.
The following options have been short listed for consideration:

a) Part time priest solely for parish
b) Part time share a priest - between 1 or 2 Anglican parishes or 2 or more
(Nearby Parishes include: Parish of Blandford, Parish of French Village, St. Nicholas Westwood, Chester)
c) Cluster - group of Anglican parishes that share a team of ministers (lay and clergy, 2 - 4)
d) Partner with another denomination
e) Priest in charge - fee for service

We have many important decisions to make moving forward and it is important that everyone in the parish has their voice heard. Stay tuned for our next visioning meeting!

Below is a summary of notes from the previous visioning sessions:
