2012 World Day of Prayer
Zion, Pembroke, Ont., hosted the 2012 World Day of Prayer service. Written by the women of Malaysia, the theme was “Let Justice Prevail.” Twelve Pembroke churches participated in this ecumenical service representing the following denominations: Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and United. Guest speaker was Lee Torvi, English teacher at Algonquin College, Pembroke. Ms Torvi taught English in Malaysia for several years, and gave an informative presentation on Malaysia, the country and its people.
Featured in the photo are (L-R): Wendy Donohue, president of Pembroke Inter-church Council of Women, Lee Torvi, guest speaker, the Rev. Martin Malina of Zion, and Edwin Mohns, Petawawa.
Pastor Martin and Mr. Mohns provided special music at both afternoon and evening services; Pastor Martin on violin and Mr. Mohns, organist. Zion’s Youth Group, who were observing a 40-hour famine event, attended and participated in the evening service. Fellowship followed each service in Zion’s parish hall (which, alas, the Youth could not enjoy!!).
