Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2020

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an annual ecumencial celebration. Christians around the world are invited to pray for the unity of all Christians, to reflect on scripture together, to participate in jointly-organized ecumenical services, and to share fellowship.

In the northern hemisphere, Week of Prayer for Christian unity is traditionally held every year between January 18 (the Feast of the Confesssion of Saint Peter) and January 25 (the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul).

This year's theme calls us to move from shared prayer to shared action. The international resources for the 2020 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by colleagues in Malta. The 2020 them, They showed us unusual kindness (Acts 28:2), remembers the historic shipwreck of Paul on the island of Malta and calls us to a greater generosity to those in need.
