World Day of Prayer Ecumenical Service

The World Day of Prayer is an international movement of Christian people in many different traditions that have a continuing relationship of prayer and service. People from various denominations gather in one another’s churches to celebrate, using a Worship Service prepared by women of a different country each year. Women, men and young people share the language, customs and music of that country, right around the globe. World Day of Prayer was begun by a group of women in the United States in 1887 and has grown to include over 180 countries and regions worldwide. In New Zealand, the first nationwide worship service was held in 1931.

This year St Patrick’s Cathedral  is hosting churches from central Auckland for an Ecumenical Service Friday 1 March at 7 pm.

Validated parking will be available from 6 PM at the Wilson Car Parks on Hobson Street ($4) and Durham Lane ($2) from 6.30 pm.  Please bring your ticket to validate in the Cathedral.
