Jesus said to her,

“Give me a drink.”

                         (John 4:7)

Below are some of the Week of Prayer events

which we have been made aware of:

Fr. Archimandrite Herbert May.  Rev. Erika Jenkins will lead the Lord's prayer.  Attendees and/or representatives of groups are encouraged to bring a 'pitcher' from which water will be poured into a common vessel in keeping with the 2015 theme and to symbolize our unity.   All are welcome!

 

January 20th -- Alexandria

 

The Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana and the Catholic Diocese of Alexandria are teaming together to host a Christian Unity Week Service on January 20, 2015, at St. James Episcopal Church in downtown Alexandria, beginning promptly at noon.  Bishop Jacob Owensby will officiate and The Rev. Dr. Frank Hughes (Rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Minden, LA) will preach.  The theme for the service is John 4:7 Jesus said to her “Give me a drink”.   We are encouraging all Christian churches in the Alexandria area to attend.  

 

January 26th -- New Orleans area

 

The annual Ecumenical Service for the Week of Prayer this year is Monday, January 26, at 7:00 PM, at Holy Name of Jesus Church on St. Charles Avenue.  Archbishop Aymond will be in attendance.  Fr.

An additional related meeting:

 

Additionally -- to commemorate this 50th year of ecumenical dialogue, there will be a seminar on ecumenism, entitled Living Room Dialogues; Fifty Years of Ecumenism, with Fr. Latronico at Loyola's Danna Center Audubon Room on Sunday evening, January 25, at 7:30 - 9:00 PM.  The concept here would be for the panel of about 4 or so to respond to Fr.

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming season. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in Your love and mercy. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for You are our only Refuge. We ask this through Jesus Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

----

God, Our Father, Creator and Lord of the universe, You have set the earth on its foundation and all the elements of nature obey Your command. We humbly beseech You to keep us safe from all dangers and calm the storms that threaten us. May we be secure in Your loving protection and serve You always with grateful hearts. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
