Day of Prayer for women of Cuba

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Madi­son Wil­liams

CHRIS­TIANS around the Shire will gather to learn about, pray for, and cel­e­brate Cuba in sol­i­dar­ity with the women of Cuba for this years’ World Day of Prayer.

Church­go­ers will wear white origami flow­ers to sig­nify the white but­ter­fly jas- mine, the na­tional flower of Cuba.

Peo­ple from all back­grounds are in­vited to at­tend lo­cal ser­vices as part of the world-wide ser­vice.

There will be fun per­for­mances by lo­cal chil­dren at both churches, St Au­gus­tine’s Catholic Church Moss­man and St Mary’s Catholic Church Port Dou­glas. This year’s theme “Re­ceive chil­dren. Re­ceive me” aims to spread a mes­sage of hope to gath­er­ings all around the world.

Ser­vices will be con­ducted at 9.30am at St Au­gus­tine’s Catholc Church Moss­man and 6.30pm at St Mary’s Catholic Church Port Dou­glas.
