Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Christians in the Holy Land have recently completed a special week of prayer for unity among the Christians in the Holy Land

Christians in the Holy Land have recently completed a special week (January 19-27) of prayer for unity among the Christians in the Holy Land, which takes place annually at the end of January. Christians belonging to various communities congregated each day of the week at a church of a different denomination and prayed together. Information with a list of the churches that participated is available at the Christian Information Center, near Jaffa Gate in the Old City. The services were generally held each afternoon for one hour and were followed by a reception.
