Women’s World Day of Prayer 2020

Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk!


Friday in March – every year – all over the world translated into over 1,000 languages

this year in Munich,




6 March 2020 at 7:00 pm.


St. John Berchmans English speaking Catholic Community.

 Kaulbachstraße 33, München Schwabing.


The service has been prepared by Christian women of Zimbabwe:


The WDP 2020 program is based on Jesus’ encounter with a person who, although positioned for healing, had not acted upon the opportunities given. Jesus asked “Do you want to be made well?” You are faced with this life-changing question. What are you going to do? “Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk,” said Jesus. Our sisters from Zimbabwe are taking Jesus’ encounter to be a call to act in love for peace and reconciliation. “The action verbs suggest that we should not be afraid to act on the word of God. God is offering us the steps for personal and social transformation.” 
We are empowered to take up our mats. No more waiting powerlessly on the mat. As expressed in the WDP 2020 painting by Nonhlanhla Mathe, let us give a healing hand to the needy, let us embrace children with love as their future is ahead, and let us open our arms in joy as the time to rise up has come.
This is the time for change!
