DELPHOS – Church Women United (CWU) is holding a World Community Day worship service at 2 p.m. on Friday at St. John’s Catholic Church. The gathering will include an Interfaith Thrift Store contribution report, given by Becky Strayer.

President Jackie Fritz spoke about the historical past of the movement here in Delphos.

“In the 1940s, with the help of Father Ottenweller, the movement began the Interfaith Thrift Store, which was instrumental in providing help to transient migrant workers,” she said.

Church Women United is a racially, culturally, theologically inclusive Christian women’s movement, celebrating unity in diversity and working for a world of peace and justice.

 

Founded in 1941, Church Women United is:
• A movement representing Protestant, Roman Catholic, Orthodox and other Christian women;
• Biblically-based, shared Christian faith;
• Organized into more than 1,200 local and state units working for peace and justice in the United States and Puerto Rico;
• Supported by constituents in state and local units and denominational women’s organizations;
• Impassioned by the Holy Spirit to act on behalf of women and children throughout the world; and
• Recognized as a non-governmental organization by the United Nations.

Local, state and national Church Women United units intentionally seek to be prayerfully informed and proactive in addressing health, environmental care, justice and economic justice from the perspective of women, children and families around the world.
