World Day of Prayer

LEIGH people turned out in force to mark the World Day of Prayer with a unity service at Our Lady of the Rosary Church.

Christians from a number of different denominations filled the church, on Common Lane, for the service, which was prepared by Christians of Malaysia on the theme ‘Let Justice Prevail’.

The church was decorated for the evening with pictures and artefacts from Malaysia, while the congregation sampled Malaysian food after the service.

The sermon was given by Dr Ann Matthias from Leigh Baptist Church.

A collection raised £409.
