This year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland. The theme, ‘Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit’, is based on John 15:1-17 and expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family.
For 2021 the sisters are inviting churches across the world to enter into their tradition of prayer and silence that is rooted in the ancient traditions of the Church catholic.
Today the community has 50 sisters, spanning different generations, Church traditions, countries and continents. In their diversity the sisters are a living parable of communion.
Each year Christian Aid provides the ‘Week of Prayer for Christian Unity’ with ‘Go and Do’ action points for each of the daily reflections – linking into the important work of Christian Aid in the relief of poverty and advocacy of justice.
