Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in Winnipeg Jan. 18-25, 2018:  City-Wide Ecumenical Worship Service 7:30 p.m., Sun., Jan. 21, 2018 at Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor Ave., Winnipeg. Click here for a poster and note that an Ecumenical Choir is being formed for the city-wide ecumenical worship service. Click here for a suggested bulletin announcement for those interested in joining the choir. The resources for the 2018 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by an ecumenical team from the Caribbean. Today, Caribbean Christians of many different traditions see the hand of God active in the ending of enslavement. The Caribbean ecumenical team chose the song of Moses and Miriam (Exodus 15:1-21) - a song of triumph over oppression - as the motif of the 2018 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. A forthcoming companion poster will list further gatherings during the Week of Prayer.
