Anglican Church To Hold Day of Prayer

Published: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

From May 25 to June 4, the Anglican Church in T&T will engage in a number of outreach activities, including a global day of prayer at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port-of-Spain.

The global day of prayer was conceptualised last year by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who had a series in England called Thy Kingdom Come as part of a global prayer movement.

The theme of the local event is Knowing Jesus Christ and the purpose is to get people to pray for others and themselves.

Speaking to ther T&T Guardian about the initiative, Interim Rector at the Anglican Church, Fr Carl Williams, said the purpose for Christians across the world was to pray for themselves and others and for others to know Jesus Christ.

Each day’s theme, daily prayer and homilies at the services will be focused on a characteristic displayed by Jesus Christ. Other themes such as repentance, the youth and the country have been added.

There will also be people present to offer prayer and priests to anoint people.
On May 26, the preacher at the mid-day Holy Eucharist will be Archbishop Joseph Harris. He will speak on the theme “Repentance and Forgiveness”.
