January 18th to 25th
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) is an ecumenical celebration held each year from January 18-25. Christians around the world are invited to pray for the unity of all Christians, to reflect on scripture together, to participate in ecumenical services and to share fellowship.
The 2024 theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU), chosen by an ecumenical team from Burkina Faso with the facilitation of the local Chemin Neuf Community (CCN), is “You shall love the Lord your God … and your neighbour as yourself”.
Based on Luke 10:27, the international theme and materials call Christians to act like Christ in loving like the Good Samaritan, showing mercy and compassion to those in need, regardless of their religious, ethnic, or social identity.
