The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an international Christian ecumenical observance kept annually on 18-25 January in the northern hemisphere and around Pentecost in the southern hemisphere.

Each year, ecumenical partners in a different region are asked to prepare the materials. The materials for the 2024 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity were prepared by an ecumenical team from Burkina Faso facilitated by the local Chemin Neuf Community.

Brothers and sisters from the Catholic Archdiocese of Ouagadougou, Protestant churches, ecumenical bodies, and the Chemin Neuf Community in Burkina Faso collaborated in drafting the prayers and reflections, and experienced their work together as a real path of ecumenical conversion.

WCC offers inspiring resources, from liturgical materials to colorful social media cards. The resources include an ecumenical opening prayer service, biblical reflections and prayers for eight days, and other elements of worship.

The materials for 2024 are available in EnglishFrenchGermanSpanishPortugueseItalian and Arabic.
