“As restrictions in many places due to the coronavirus pandemic are making it difficult to physically gather, this global online celebration will allow us to pray together wherever we are,” said Sauca. “Prayer is one of the fruits that is borne out of our abiding in Christ’s love.”

Traditionally the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated from 18-25 January, between the feasts of St Peter and St Paul, especially in the northern hemisphere. The theme for 2021 is “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit.”
