Every year on March 25th, the feast of the Annunciation, WOC joins the global women's ordination movement to bring attention to the issue of women's ordination by providing resources to host public demonstrations, home liturgies, and presentations about women's ordination and structural change in the church.
On the 17th Annual World Day of Prayer, we will spread the good news about women's leadership in the church and encourage women who wish to fulfill their call. While the Vatican promotes images of a solitary male priest, we will show the world women-led liturgies and community-led prayer. We will also highlight the work of those who claim their priesthood through baptism and work for justice in their communities daily.
Each year, there are more and more events to celebrate World Day of Prayer. Together, we will call for equality to be reflected in our church, and we're excited to provide you with resources to assist you in organizing an event in your community.
To organize an event, download the 2011 Activist Toolkit today. We are here to offer you support and technical assistance as you plan your event. Let us know the details, so we can help publicize it.
