Christian Unity Week January 18th – 25th

 

FROM THE DIOCESAN LITURGY RESOURCE CENTRE

 

Theme

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

 

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021

18th to 25th January marks the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity. This year’s Liturgy was prepared by the monastic community of sisters in Grandchamp, Switzerland, who draw much from the spirit of the Taize Community. Attached are three resources that we hope will help you find prayers you could include each day of the Octave in your parish liturgy, a simplified prayer in the home, and the entire text ‘as Gaeilge’. This year’s Inaugural Service, hosted by Christ Church Rathgar Presbyterian and organised by the Dublin Council of Churches, will be available as a pre-recorded You Tube featuring participants from 14 Christian denominations in the Dublin area.  You can watch here: https://youtu.be/w8LuXJFeLyM

FROM THE DIOCESAN LITURGY RESOURCE CENTRE

Sunday of the Word of God 2021 24th January – The attached leaflet offers some simple suggestions as to how we can visually honour the Word of God in the course of the Sunday Eucharist, even within our current restrictions, and a reflection on the Word to be shared or used for inspiration and prayer alone.
