Week of Prayer

  • 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.

    Theme, 2015

    This year's theme was selected by the churches of Brazil: "Jesus said to her: 'Give me to drink.'" John 4:7, NRSV
