Today is the first day of the 2024 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25, 2024)!
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an annual ecumenical 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.
It’s not too late to get involved in this special event!
