Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
18th – 25th January
This week is a chance for everyone to seek a closer union with Christ. This year's theme comes to us from the churches of Brazil. Increasingly, in Brazil, some Christian groups compete with one another for a place on the mass media, for new members and for public funds.
The Brazilian churches have begun to recognise that intolerance should be dealt with in a positive way - respecting diversity and promoting dialogue as a permanent path of reconciliation and peace in fidelity to the gospel. We can share this        recognition.
The central event in Cork will this Year  take place in Ardfallen Church, Douglas Road, on Sunday 25th January 25th @ 7:30pm. 
Everyone is welcome to attend.
