Every year, Christian communities and churches join together to pray for the visible unity of the Church, accepting the will of Christ, who prayed “that all may be one” (John 17:21) during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. In the U.S., this Week of Prayer is commemorated from January 18-25.
This commemoration is especially highlighted in the Diocese of Wilmington because the founder of the week, Servant of God, Father Paul Wattson, SA, was born in the Maryland portion of our diocese.
Information and resources regarding the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is available at www.GEII.org.
