About the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
The Church Unity Octave was first observed in January, 1908, in the chapel of a small Atonement Franciscan Convent of the Protestant Episcopal Church, on a remote hillside fifty miles from New York City. This new prayer movement gradually blossomed into the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, a worldwide observance involving many nations and millions of people.
Today, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is sponsored by the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity. It belongs to all Christians who are sincerely interested in the fulfillment of Christ’s prayer “that all may be one.”
The 2014 prayer texts were prepared by the Christian Churches of Canada. Materials for our celebration are the work of Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute in collaboration with the Commission on Faith and Order of the National Council of Churches and the Roman Catholic Bishops’ Commission for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs.
