"You shall bear much fruit" - Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The ecumenical international observance of this week is kept annually to express the degree of communion which the churches have already reached, and it is a privileged time to remind Christians of the Jesus prayer: “That they may all be one”.

The 2021 theme – “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit” (John 15:5-9) – calls us to pray and to work for reconciliation and unity in the church, with our human family, and with all of creation.

We’ll send you an email each day from Jan. 18 -24 with a daily prayer for Christian Unity.

This year, due to the pandemic, the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism and The Regina Council of Churches will partner and hold an 8-day virtual bible study series based on the themes for Week of Prayer 2021.

The theme for Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021 is "Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit"(John 15:5-9) and materials have been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland.
