 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity [18-24th January]
 seeks to explore how the work of Christian Unity can contribute to the promotion of racial justice across all levels of society. The theme is Belonging: Praying for unity amidst injustice.

Pope Francis tweeted  The paths of peace are paths of solidarity, for no one can be saved alone. We live in a world so interconnected that, in the end, the actions of each person affect everyone. Let us always remember that the way we treat the last and the least of our brothers and sisters speaks of the value we place upon all human life.
