We were born for these words, for unity, to give a contribution to its realization in the world. Chiara Lubich

Theme for 2011:
Ever since it was established in 1908, the week has been observed each year from January 18 to January 25 in the northern hemisphere and at Pentecost in the southern hemisphere.
This year's program was prepared by churches in Jerusalem, the mother church. Mindful of its own divisions and its own need to do more for the unity of the Body of Christ, the churches in Jerusalem call all Christians to rediscover the values that bound together the early Christian Community in Jerusalem, when they devoted themselves to the Apostles' teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of pread and to prayer.
Local communities around the world adapt this program to highlight their own unique gifts.
During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, congregations and parishes gather as one community to get to know each other better and to pray together.
Either by hosting a prayer service or by participating in local events, members of the Focolare Movement throughout the United States and in other parts of the world welcome this unique opportunity to build the one Christian family through a dialog of life.
We invite everyone to join us!
