Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2023: January 18-25th

beacon of hopeWe look forward to the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The theme for 2023 is: "Do good; seek justice" - "Apprenez à faire le bien, recherchez la justice" (Isaiah 1:17)

At least once a year, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special celebrations and prayer services. The event that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

This year the liturgy has been put together by churches in the USA (convened by the Minnesota Council of Churches). More than ever, in these difficult times, we need a light that shines in the darkness, and that light, Christians proclaim, has been manifested in Jesus Christ.
