Vacancy Arises For World Day Of Prayer Role

A vacancy has arisen for a volunteer Catholic representative vacancy for the World Day of Prayer.

Formerly the Women’s World Day of Prayer, the World Day of Prayer is the largest ecumenical, global women-led movement. Its motto is “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action”. 

In the UK, funds raised from the annual services assist many different projects funded by Christian charities worldwide.

“The national committee is made up women from many different Christian denominations,” said Siobhan Canham, whose forthcoming retirement has created the vacancy.

“It has been for me personally very fruitful to meet with enthusiastic women from various Christian denominations and I have learned to appreciate my own faith from a different perspective.”

This is a voluntary position, with travel expenses paid and accommodation where necessary.

Applicants – any Catholic woman over 18 years but would best suit retired person or someone with flexible working hours.

Meetings – 4-5 one-day meetings in London and a three-day residential in November, to prepare the materials for the following year’s World Day of Prayer.

Preparation Days – members assist at training days or half days arranged by local branches across the country. Averages four days attendance between September and February.

Qualifications – Enthusiasm and commitment (specialist skills always welcome but not required).

Appointment – The Catholic representative on the WDP National Committee is appointed by Cardinal Vincent Nichols on the recommendation and also sits on the National Board of Catholic Women (NBCW).

The representative makes a written report to the board three times a year and attends NBCW meetings if possible.

The closing date is July 29 2020.

Please contact Siobhan for an informal chat by calling 01395 227720 or 07517 868 191 or emailing sgcanham@aol.com.
