Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2022

Image description

The 2022 theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, “We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship him” (Mt 2:2), was prepared by the Middle East Council of Churches, based in Beirut, Lebanon. The theme speaks to our world’s urgent need for solidarity and transformation in the face of political, economic, and social turmoil, including the challenges and injustices highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we join the Christians of the Middle East in the journey to Christ’s manger, may we become a sign of the unity that God desires for all creation, and may we return to our home, our churches, and our world by new ways.

We are unable to gather locally due to the pandemic health precautions so the Roman Catholic Diocese of Peterborough and area churches are joining in prayer virtually with the Greater Toronto Council of Churches.

The Greater Toronto Council of Churches invites you to a livestream celebration

on Sunday, January 23rd, 2022, at 4:00 pm

2021-2023 Synod for a Synodal Church

Image description

Pope Francis has announced that in preparation for the next Synod of Bishops, there will be a worldwide conversation in the Church or a "synod" about community, engaged participation, and the mission of evangelization. This conversation will follow a two-year path and involve the People of God - everyone, everywhere. All are invited to join in prayer as we begin this synodal conversation and unite it with the Diocesan Pastoral Planning Process.

Join the conversation at our parish

Pope Francis hopes that the synod will inspire conversation and discussion over some topics and challenges relevant to the life of the Church in the world today. For each of the next eight weeks, all are invited to join the discussion online.

Last week to contribute! Have any thoughts on these questions?
