Over 100 people from a variety of Christian Churches, including the Catholic, Anglican, Uniting, Baptist and Greek Orthodox Churches gathered at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Bondi
Beach for an ecumenical service to mark the World Day of Prayer on March 2.
The service was prepared by the World Day of Prayer Committee in Samoa. Sydney’s Sr Mary Cresp spoke the theme of the day, Informed
Prayer, Prayer in Action, while students from St Anne’s School read the prayer of intercession.
Dressed in traditional Samoan dress they also read The Lord’s Prayer, first in Samoan, then in English.
