Week of Prayer for Christian Unity comes to a close

Pray for Church unity the whole year long, says Presbyterian minister

Some 400 people who gathered Jan. 29 to mark the closing of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity were welcomed to the new Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon by Deacon Bob Williston.

Rev. Amanda Currie of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Saskatoon opened the celebration, the final in a series of gatherings organized in different Christian churches throughout the community by the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism between Jan. 21 and 29.

"Although the week is coming to an end, I would encourage you to continue to pray for the unity of the Church throughout the year, and to take up the many opportunities for us to gather together as Christians and as churches to pray together, to worship together, to grow in relationship with one another and to engage in common witness and common mission in the world," said Currie.
