From its founding more than 75 years ago, the NC Council of Churches has worked toward Christian unity, and we are proud to join with our members in celebrating the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity from January 18-25.
The theme for 2013 is “What Does God Require of Us?” (cf. Micah 6:6-8).
In North Carolina, there will be several observances of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, including:
Tuesday, January 22, 7 p.m.
Resurrection United Methodist Church
4705 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham
The Most Reverend Michael Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, and the Rev. Hope Morgan Ward, Resident Bishop, United Methodist Church of North Carolina, will participate in an Ecumenical Service of the Word along with other clergy. Holy Cross Roman Catholic Gospel Choir will join in the celebration. Click here for more info from the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh.
Wednesday, January 23, 7 p.m.
The Cathedral of Saint Patrick
