World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome all to join in prayer and action for peace and justice.

“Come – Everything is ready” was the theme for this year’s World Day of Prayer, as an invitation to praise, thank, and proclaim the kingdom of love. The World YWCA, together with the Lutheran World Federation & the World Council of Churches, joined others around the world in celebrating this day, reflecting & highlighting the voices of women in Slovenia.

After the service, participants were invited to a bake sale to contribute to the project “Pastoral care of open spaces”. This initiative works with vulnerable populations by strengthening their self-esteem, support them to recognise their strengths, raise their voices and build bridges between the different populations in Geneva.
