World Prayer Day celebrated for Slovenia

On World Prayer Day for Slovenia on Friday March 1st, 2019, the British-Slovene Society helped arrange a service at the lovely St. Margaret’s Church in London opposite Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.

Those taking part in the service could see some typical Slovenian books and artefacts, including the Poems of France Prešeren and a model of a Slovenian ‘Kozolec’ (Hayrack).

Celia Scott, Canon Sinclair, Linda Ulrich, Deacon Saunders and other World Day of Prayer volunteers helped make this a very warm occasion.

British-Slovene Society Trustee Simona Bennett, former Trustee Breda Wilkinson and Karen Košak gave readings. Trustee Miha Košak helped coordinate, and Špela Vrbnjak of the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia provided further support.

Each year a World Day of Prayer is devoted to a different country.
