World Day of Prayer slated for March 7th

Mark your calendar for a special time of prayer, music and storytelling at the Annual World Day of Prayer. World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of Christian women joined together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday of March. This year in Glasgow it will be hosted at St. Raphaels Church on Friday, March 7th from 11:30am-12:30pm with a light lunch to follow at the parish center and all

are welcome. The theme is Streams in the Desert with an Egyptian context.
