Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
For more than 100 years The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been an important expression of ecumenical activity at the local level. The theme and text for each year’s observance of the Week of Prayer are chosen and prepared by representatives of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. The events in most parts of the world are scheduled from January 18-25 each year, corresponding with the Feast of Saint Peter and the conversion of Saint Paul.
The 2013 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be January 18-25, 2013.
The international texts are developed, adapted and published for use in the USA by the Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute.
