January 18-25, 2024

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a worldwide movement among Christians to pray together to promote     dialogue among Christian communities. The theme for 2024     is “You shall love the Lord your God…and your neighbor as yourself” Luke 10:27.  This theme reflects the connection     between love of God and love of neighbor with a particular   concern for challenging the boundaries of who is considered “neighbor”.  In this pericope, Jesus is questioned as to the path to eternal life.  His answer is not to only observe the commandments, but to also imitate the love of God in the giving of self for another. It is a call for charity, mercy, justice, and unity in inter-communal relations.
