10 Days of Prayer and Thanksgiving for the Roma, 2012

In 2012, Presbyterian Women will join their voices with others around the world who are concerned with justice for the Roma, who are marginalized throughout Europe.

Presbyterian Women and Presbyterian World Mission have created a 10-day prayer and study guide to lead up to International Day of the Roma, celebrated on April 8. Beginning March 29, you are invited to use the booklet to learn about the issues affecting Roma in Europe and offer prayers for change. Each day is dated for your convenience, but the booklet is timeless, so use it at any time of the year to learn more about the Romani people and lift up them up in prayer.

Presbyterian Women's Weaving for a Future project provides an opportunity to purchase a basket hand-woven by Roma women from two communities in Carpath-Ukraine.
