Week of Prayer for Christian Unity across the Diocese

During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, chaplaincies from across Europe celebrated the gift of unity through prayer.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been organised by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity of the Roman Catholic Church since 1968.

The theme for 2022 was: "We saw a star in the East, and we came to worship him".

The Revd Tony Lomas, Chaplaincy of Aquitaine said " [This week] reminds Christians of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21)".  He continued "Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity."

Chaplaincies, congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special celebrations and prayer services. Enjoy our gallery of services and events that took place across our diocese below:
