World Day of Prayer

World Day of Prayer is held in March every year. The origins of World Day of Prayer date back to the 19th century when Christian women in the USA and Canada initiated a variety of cooperative activities in support of women’s involvement in mission, at home and abroad. It is from such roots as these that WDP has taken its present shape – a worldwide ecumenical movement of Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action.  More information is available at:  or from our parish contact Bairbre McKendrick who can be contacted by emailing the parish office:
