Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Resources

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be held as usual between Ascension Sunday and Pentecost, this year 28 May-4 June.

The Catholic Bishops Committee for Ecumenism has adjusted resources prepared by the Holy See and the World Council of Churches for use in New Zealand. They include prayers for each day of the week, a suggested order for an ecumenical service, and a booklet explaining the Week of Prayer.

This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, and parishes are encouraged to talk with other Christian churches in their area about doing something together. For example, a joint push to double foodbank contributions during that week may be a possibility.
