As from Thursday 18th January 2024, all Christians around the world will be celebrating the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which will end on Thursday 25th January. During this week, different Churches come together in ecumenical prayer to seek Christian unity.

This year’s theme is “Love the Lord your God … and your neighbour as yourself” (Lk 10:27). This theme and related material have been prepared by an ecumenical group in Burkina Faso, a country between western Africa and the Sahara Desert.

During this week a Diocesan Ecumenical Service will be held on Friday 19th January 2024 at 6:30pm at St Andrew’s Scots Church in Valletta. Archbishop Charles Scicluna will participate, together with other Church leaders in Malta. A biblical reflection will be delivered by Rev. Nikos Gongadze of the Patriarchal Exarchate of Melite, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. Everyone is invited to attend.
