Week of Prayer for Christian Unity / Semaine de prière de l’unité des chrétiens

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed annually, beginning on 18 January (Confession of St Peter) and concluding on 25 January (Conversion of St Paul). The dates for the observance were first proposed in 1904 by Father Paul Wattson (1863 – 1940), cofounder of the Graymoor Franciscan Friars, an Anglican religious order at the time.

This year the different churches in Malta have prepared resources on the theme: “They Showed Us Unusual Kindness,” inspired by Acts 27.18-28.10. It was through the “unusual kindness” shown by the people to St Paul, after he had been washed ashore in Malta, that a divided people were drawn closer together.

On Saturday 25 January we will join in an ecumenical service at 18h30 with other neighbourhood churches at Christ Ressuscité, 4 rue de Palerme, followed by a meal. Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share around.

The next day there will be a session of Frankly Speaking after church on the topic: “Challenges to Christian Unity.”

La Semaine de prière de l’unité des chrétiens est commémorée chaque année du 18 janvier (Confession de Saint-Pierre) au 25 janvier   (Conversion de Saint-Paul). Cette année, les différentes Églises de Malta ont préparé des ressources sur le thème : « Ils nous traitèrent avec une très grande bienveillance », inspirée d’ Actes 27.18- 28.10.  Le samedi 25 janvier nous participerons à un culte œcuménique à 18h30 avec d’autres églises de quartier qui aura lieu à Christ Ressuscité, 4 rue de Palerme, suivi d’un     repas. Chacun est invité d’apporter un plat à partager avec les autres.

Le lendemain y aura-t-il à St Alban un forum de Frankly Speaking après la messe au sujet de « Défis de l’Unité chrétienne ». Venez nombreux !

Aussi dans le cadre de la Semaine de prière…

Matinée Oecuménique pour enfants 6-12 ans, mercredi 22 janvier 10h15 – 12h00, église St Maurice, Place Arnold. Voir p Mark pour s’inscrire.

Women’s Breakfast Bible Study 9 March

Catherine Emezie writes:

Our next women’s breakfast meeting will be held on Saturday 9 March at 09.00h. I will host the breakfast at my place (24 rue Cerf Berr, 67200 Strasbourg, Tram D, Bus 4a Poteries). Below is the link to watch the movie “Heaven is for Real” which Astrid has kindly shared with us so that we can watch the movie beforehand. You could probably make some notes as you watch since we will only be able to watch excerpts on the meeting day and thus have more time to discuss.
