Universal Day of Prayer 2011

March 17, 2011

Dear SCM friends,

Greetings from Geneva!

The Ecumenical Water Network (EWN) and the World Student Christian Federation prepared this liturgy together. It may also be found on:http://www.oikoumene.org/en/activities/ewn-home/resources-and-links/seven-weeks-for-water.html. There is also a Lenten study on water (WSCF contributed to week 3) and other ideas for activities on the EWN website.

The WSCF Executive Committee decided to change the traditional date for the UDPS from February to March 22, 2011 (for this year only!) in order to celebrate the UDPS on World Water Day and to connect the UDPS with the launch of the WSCF’s Water Campaign!

You should have received information on the LAUNCH, and the Water Task Force (with members from each region) will continue to be in communication with you.

Please contact me with any questions.

Blessings in your UDPS celebrations,


Christine Housel
