The theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) for 2021 is ‘Abiding in Christ’.
WPCU is traditionally celebrated between January 18 and January 25 – the the octave of St. Peter and St. Paul.
The materials for the week have been prepared by the ecumenical Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland which has fifty sisters, women from different generations, Church traditions, countries and continents. The theme is based on John 15:1-17 “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit” and expresses the Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family.
Resources – including daily reflections and an example order of service – are available for download. There will be no printed resources for 2021.
You can also view a short recorded reflection on the 2021 theme from our General Secretary Paul Goodliff.
