Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an annual observance that takes place from January 18 to January 25. It is a global Christian ecumenical event where Christians from different denominations come together to pray for unity among churches and promote greater understanding and cooperation among Christians worldwide.

The idea behind this week of prayer is to emphasize the common elements that unite Christians rather than focusing on denominational differences. An international group of representatives from various Christian traditions typically prepares the theme and materials for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

During this week, Christians are encouraged to engage in joint prayer services, gatherings, and other events that foster a sense of unity and mutual respect among diverse Christian communities. The observance aims to promote dialogue, reconciliation, and cooperation among Christians in their shared commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

The event is finished.
