Canadians Write, Promote Material for Annual Week of Prayer for Unity
Dec. 12, 2013
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be celebrated around the world, January 18-25, 2014. Printed resources in English and French for the 2014 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity can still be ordered (in PDF) from the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC). These resources may be freely downloaded online. The CCC has also prepared social media material, available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/wpcu.canada.
In collaboration with Salt + Light TV, the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism has produced an English and French promotional video clip to promote the resources and the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
For the third time in history, a writing committee from Canada has been responsible for drafting the printed resources that will be used throughout the world for the 2014 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The Canadian writing committee was under the chairmanship of the Most Reverend Donald Bolen, Bishop of Saskatoon, and a member for the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
