You are invited to a virtual celebration for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity!

WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

JANUARY 18-25, 2022

The 2022 theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, “We saw the star in
the East, and we came to worship him” (Mt 2:2), was prepared by the Middle East
Council of Churches, based in Beirut, Lebanon.
The international theme and resources speak to our world’s urgent need for
solidarity and transformation in the face of political, economic, and social turmoil,
including the challenges and injustices highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As
we join the Christians of the Middle East in the journey to Christ’s manger, may
we become a sign of the unity that God desires for all creation, and may we
return to our home, our churches, and our world by new ways.
We are unable to gather locally due to the pandemic health precautions so the
Roman Catholic Diocese of Peterborough and area churches are joining in prayer
virtually with the Greater Toronto Council of Churches.
The Greater Toronto Council of Churches invites you to a livestream
celebration on Sunday, January 23rd, 2022, at 4:00 p.m.

PRAYER

A star led the Magi to Christ. 

Today this star points to the presence of Christ, who has been revealed to us and whose light shines on us. 

As the Magi followed the star to Bethlehem, we gather under this star today, adding our own stars to the sky, uniting our own gifts and prayers for the visible unity of Church. 

As we journey towards that goal, may our lives together give a luminous witness that leads others to know Christ.

Amen.
