Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is one of the oldest, most widely observed ecumenical events in the world and is held from January 18 to 25. This is the octave was proposed by Paul Wattson in 1908, because it begins with the feast of St. Peter and ends with the feast of the conversion of St. Paul.

The theme and a focus biblical text are prepared by an international Joint Committee of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. National and regional councils of churches work to adapt and add to these resources as appropriate to their local context.

The material for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2012 was prepared by a working group composed of representatives of the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and Old Catholic and Protestant Churches active in Poland. The theme this year is:

"We will all be changed by the Victory of our Lord Jesus Christ"
(cf. 1 Cor 15:51-58)
