The texts for the Week of Prayer of Prayer for Christian Unity 2024 have been published. The theme of the 2024 Week of Prayer is based on a text from the Gospel of St Luke: “You shall love the Lord your God … and your neighbour as yourself” (Luke 10:27).

To promote Christian Unity and Dialogue among World Religions

The October launching of the 1st Irénée Beaubien, s.j. Ecumenical Institute by the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism will assemble noted experts in ecumenism (Christian unity) and interreligious dialogue. Fifty years after the foundation of the Centre and the publication of the Vatican Council II decree on ecumenism, this event will create a space where the theory and the practice of ecumenism can intersect and serve as a platform for future action. Pioneers who laboured to establish dialogue when this was not the popular thing to do will pass on their experience and the knowledge gleaned from their efforts to a younger generation passionate about overcoming differences and working together. Society will reap the benefits.

The Irénée Beaubien Ecumenical Institute will bring together people from different churches and different religions for two days of conferences, October 24-25, in the Anglican diocese’s Fulford Hall in Montréal located at 1444 Union Avenue. Participants will learn from some fourteen church leaders and specialists in the fields of inter-church and interfaith dialogue as these speakers explore the understanding and the practice of ecumenism from different angles. Question periods following each talk will provide the opportunity for clarification and exchange.

A workshop for Parish Ecumenical Contacts (PECs) and for all Christians who are praying and working for the unity of the church: Saturday, October 1, 2011 9 am to noon at Wildwood Mennonite Church (1502 Acadia Drive), Saskatoon. Registration begins at 8:30 am. (There is no cost for this workshop.)

We talk about unity a lot, but what do we really mean by it? What will unity look like? Does ecumenism mean that we will all be the same? Where are we going, and how are we going to get there? There are different models and methods of unity which influence our churches’ ecumenical priorities. This workshop will lay out some of the more significant positions. Presenters will include Bishop Donald Bolen (Roman Catholic), Bishop Cindy Halmarson (Lutheran) and Rev. Ron McConnell (United).

For further details email the PCE at or phone 306-653-1633.
