Today Dominica joins the rest of the world to observe World Day of Prayer.

A special service will be held at the Roman Catholic Church tonight.

“We want friends, family and communities of faith to join in prayer and song to support women’s ecumenical ministries toward justice, peace, healing and wholeness. The annual offering will support the work of World Day of Prayer and help meet the needs of families who are victims of poverty, violence and human trafficking”, noted representative of the Social League of Catholic Women Dorothy Henderson.

She said following Friday’s commemoration a special committee will be formed.

“What we have right now is a local committee, but we want to have an international committee where women from other countries will be represented,” she said.

The role of the committee will include allocating funding for various projects.
