The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is usually held in the third week of January. In 2020 it's 18 - 25th January. The theme is Unusual Kindness.
Hospitality is a much needed virtue in our search for Christian unity. It calls us to a greater generosity to those in need. The people who showed unusual kindness to Paul and his companions did not yet know Christ, and yet it is through their unusual kindness that a divided people were drawn closer together. Our own Christian unity will be discovered not only through showing hospitality to one another, but also through loving encounters with those who do not share our language, culture or faith. This year's materials have been prepared by churches in Malta and Gozo.
