Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is January 18-25

The traditional period in the northern hemisphere for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is January 18-25. Those dates were proposed in 1908 by Paul Wattson to cover the days between the feasts of St Peter and St Paul, and therefore have a symbolic significance. If you would like to participate in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, you may find materials at this link.
