Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2023

 

21 - 28  May 2023 

 

“Do good; seek justice.”

 (Isaiah 1:17)

 

 The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in Australia will be observed in the week between Ascension and Pentecost.

The theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2023 was chosen by the Minnesota Council of Churches “Do good; seek justice.”  (cf Isaiah 1:17)  

The working group appointed by the Minnesota Council of Churches chose this verse from the first chapter of the prophet Isaiah as the central text for the Week of Prayer: “learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow” (1:17).

The resources have been adapted for use in Australia by the NCCA Faith and Unity Commission in collaboration with the Faith and Order Commission of the Victorian Council of Churches
