Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an occasion where we all come together in spirit to commit ourselves and pray for the Unity every year in January from 18 -to 25. Last year historically we have observed the Unity Octave in several thousand congregations and the worship order was translated into 5 major Indian languages.
In few weeks from now, the next Unity Octave is starting. The social and political context also demand such united expressions all over. So, let the NEW YEAR (2017) be another year where we could bring further more churches and congregations to observe the same. In fact let these not just observances but celebrations indeed.
