Manor will host World Day of Prayer

Manor will host World Day of Prayer This year's World Day of Prayer theme encourages women and men to respond to Jesus' challenge in the Sermon on the Mount: "Let Our Light Shine." We are asked to share the talents which we have received, as well as the special gifts of grace and light received in Christian baptism. Our light, after all, only reflects the great light which came into the world and identified himself as that light � Jesus Christ. Come and enjoy this reflection and celebration.

World Day of Prayer will be held Friday, March 4 at 2 p.m. at the Wakonda Heritage Manor. Everyone is wel-

come.

Invite your friends, families and communitites of faith to join the women of Poland in prayer and song and to support women's ecumenical ministries toward peace and justice. An offering to support the ongoing work of Church Women United (the national committee of the World Day of Prayer in the United States) is taken. Portions of your offering are designated toward women's projects both internationally and in the U.S., as well as to support the ongoing work of the World Day of Prayer International Committee which works with women around the world to prepare worship materials and resources.

Founded in 1941, Church Women United (CWU) is an ecumenical movement reaching 25 million Protestant, Roman Catholic, Orthodox and other Christian women. The movement is organized into more than 1,200 local and state units working for peace and justice in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. CWU is a recognized United Nations NGO.
