The WCC is among more than 60 partners preparing for hosting the event, during which young people are gathering, and those around the world will gather with them in spirit, through prayer and Christian unity.

Together” takes place before a synodal assembly for the Catholic Church.

As brothers and sisters of several Christian denominations will come together in prayer, we will reaffirm together the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ who prayed in John 17 that we may be one so that the world may believe,” said Nalwamba. "The WCC has been associated with the preparation of the Togetherproject, specially through our  Youth Engagement in the Ecumenical Movement programme.”

Nalwamba added: I am therefore glad to represent the WCC at the culminating event in Rome, an ecumenical city where Christian leaders from so many different confessions will share in the programme.”

She concluded: The Togetherevent will convene us in Rome, and globally online, to reaffirm Christian unity to strengthen our witness in an increasingly polarising world. It is my hope that the Togetherprayers inspire us to not do alone what we can do together, locally and globally.”
