    About

    This week is a significant ecumenical event with over 100 years of history. Since 1908, the eight days between January 18-25 have been set aside for Christians to remember who they are — a unified group with the same foundation in Jesus Christ. Christians from around the world join together in the same prayers prepared by a group from around the world, that the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity appoints.
