Service Locations

Where is your nearest World Day of Prayer service?

Ask your local worship leader for details on your community’s service. Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, WICC is unable to advertise service locations for 2022.

It is really important that any World Day of Prayer events follow the latest health guidelines and protocols in your area for COVID-19. WICC is encouraging the online WDP service to simplify your planning and include those who are not able to attend in person. Some groups may have the technical support to meet online. Others may be able to assemble in a small group to watch the online service together. Many of us will watch the service in our homes.

The World Day of Prayer, traditionally held on the first Friday of March, will be broadcast on local television stations across Canada for the first time in 99 years. Each year, since 1922, a different host country has prepared the content of the World Day of Prayer service, highlighting its country’s culture and regional justice issues. The 2022 service has been written by the England, Wales and Northern Ireland World Day of Prayer Committee and adapted for use in Canada by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada. Viewers from all over the country will be able to virtually unite in prayer and action, by tuning into the broadcast.
