Church holds World Day of Prayer service

(WEAU) - University Lutheran Church held a World Day of Prayer service Wednesday night.

It is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March. Organizers say it was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of god's kingdom.

Parish Life Ministry Chair Judy Staszcuk told us "the theme tonight was 'you were a stranger but I welcomed you' and so that was the hope tonight, that we could welcome people and that we could reach out to others with that same sense of welcome to all."

Each year a different country's committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service, this year was written by the women of France.
