The St. Isabel Women’s Guild hosted the 2019 World Day of Prayer on March 1 in the parish hall. The event focused on the country of Slovenia and the service was written by the women of Slovenia. It was an ecumenical service and members from the various churches on Sanibel participated. An offering was taken to support the World Day of Prayer Ministry. Frank Murn, who was born in Slovenia, attended and shared information about the country and entertained guests with some lively tunes on his button accordion. A light meal was served featuring Slovenian foods. The country flag of Slovenia is white, blue and red so many participants dressed in the colors.
