The annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be celebrated 18 to 25 January 2018 on the theme "Your right hand, O LORD, glorious in power" (Exodus 15:6). The resources in English and French can be freely downloaded online from the Canadian website for the Week of Prayer. The theme and biblical texts for this annual Week of Prayer are jointly prepared by the Holy See's Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches. The thematic introduction to the 2018 materials comes from Churches in the Caribbean region. National and regional Councils of Churches adapt the resources for their local context. The resources for Canada are produced by an ecumenical writing team coordinated by the Commission on Faith and Witness of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC), in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism in Montreal and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism in Saskatoon. The CCCB is a member of the CCC and is also represented on its Canadian writing team for the Week of Prayer.
