Jean Hackett, president of the National Committee of the Women's World
Day of Prayer Movement,
said: "This is always an exciting day as a great wave of prayer sweeps the world, beginning when the first service is held in Tonga and continuing around the world until the final service takes place, some 35 hours later, in neighbouring Western Samoa.
"By then the day will have been celebrated in over 170 countries and over 5,000 services will have been held in England, Wales and Northern Ireland."
Stretching from Peru to Antarctica, the Republic of Chile occupies a long, narrow strip of land 2640 miles long and 110 miles wide. It is a land of incredible contrasts. It also has the highest incidence of domestic violence in Latin America and most women suffer from discrimination in some form or other. Equal opportunities are being pursued. Although organised and led by women, this is essentially a day of prayer for everybody as they demonstrate their solidarity with their sisters and brothers in other countries. All welcome to attend.
