The World Day of Prayer was observed on March 4 in Moose Jaw with people of many faith communities joining together at Central Lutheran Church for the service of praise.
The World Day of Prayer 2016 was written by the World Day of Prayer Committee of Cuba and was entitled “Receive children, Receive me”.
Parishioners of Church of Our Lady and St. Joseph’s participated in the service including guest speaker, Doug Panko who addressed the congregation about his experiences travelling in Cuba. Mr. Panko spoke about the history and the current affairs of Cuba, especially his experiences visiting schools where he delivered pens, paper and sports shoes to appreciative children.
Special Cuban themed music complemented the organ and was provided by Heather and Doug Shepherd.
