Thank you to Mrs Barbara Foley-Fisher, who invited OLB Transition Year students completing the Pope John Paul II Award to participate in this year’s World Day of Prayer, in St Peter’s and Paul’s on Friday, March 3rd.
This year’s worship service was written by the women of Taiwan, with the theme “I have heard about your faith”. During the service letters of encouragement sent to women who face suffering and injustice were shared. Bower students, Amy Watkinson, Orla Corcoran, Lorraine Moran and Michelle Flynn then read prayers of intercession for the people of Taiwan, the environment, the oppressed, those who experienced loss during COVID, unity and peace.
It was lovely for the Bower students to be part of this ecumenical gathering which promotes justice and equality for women through prayer, partnership, service and celebration.
