St. Isabel’s to serve as host church for World Day of Prayer

By Staff | Feb 27, 2019

People in over 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer on March 1.

On Sanibel, the annual event is hosted by a different congregation each year with members from each church participating. The Women’s Guild of St. Isabel’s Catholic Community is the host this year.

The service will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall, at 3559 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel. Afterward, there will be a sharing of foods typical of Slovenia and an opportunity for socialization.

This year, the women of the WDP Committee of Slovenia’s theme is “Come – Everything Is Ready.” With these words as a backdrop, participants are invited to learn about Slovenia’s history and cultural diversity. The women of Slovenia share stories of intergenerational wisdom, traditions and experiences of God’s profound love and acceptance. The focus is on Jesus’ parable of the Great Dinner (in Lk. 14:15-24). One phrase in the worship service captures the ideas that will be explored: “Welcoming God, in Your love, you have prepared a table for all, and you inspire us lot open our hearts and homes to offer a place to the ones who are not yet at the table.”

There is handicap accessibility for those in need.
