18th to 25th January marks the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity.

The theme for the 2021 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is ‘Abide in my Love…You Shall Bear Much Fruit’. It finds its origins in the Gospel of John (John 15:5-9).

This year’s Liturgy was prepared by the monastic community of sisters in Grandchamp, Switzerland. For more details please visit
