Starting on Monday, 3 March, the “Seven Weeks for Water” campaign invites churches, faith-based organizations and individuals around the world to join a “pilgrimage towards water justice”.
A service of the Great Blessing of the Waters was conducted at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva today. The Theophany celebrates the revelation of the Holy Trinity to the world through the baptism of Jesus Christ in the waters of the Jordan River by John the Baptist. This rite also underlines the spiritual significance of water in Christian tradition.
World Toilet Day on 19 November 2013 was celebrated as United Nations World Toilet Day for the first time. The UN endorsement for World Toilet Day came almost 2 decades later than for World Water Day.
