Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity”  is an annual ecumenical celebration which is traditionally held from January 18th  to 25th.  By coming together during this week, we join with the people around the world to pray for Christian unity – in worship, reflection, study, and fellowship.   This year, we rejoice in the opportunity to pray with the Christians of Germany. They have chosen as their theme “Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us,” inspired by 2 Corinthians 5:14-20. They invite Christians around the world to celebrate God’s reconciling grace, call us to recognize the pain of the deep divisions which afflict the Church, and urge us to become ambassadors of Christ’s message of reconciliation.
