Administrative history

The Women's World Day of Prayer was an interdenominational service organized in the United States in 1827 as "a day of prayer for home missions". By 1922, Canadian women's groups began participation. The event was renamed "The World Day of Prayer" in 1927, and the first Friday in March was selected for the event. The St. John's committee included women from several denominations: Presbyterian, Lutheran, United, Anglican, Baptist, Salvation Army, Church of Nazarene, and Roman Catholic.
