A l'occasion de la semaine de prière pour l'unité des chrétiens, nous aimerions vous inviter à célébrer avec nous ce moment important pour tous. Étant tous enfants de Dieu, nous nous rassemblerons afin de prier pour l'unité en un seul Seigneur sous le thème « Ta main droite, Seigneur, éclatante de puissance » . Le thème et les textes ont été choisis par la région des Caraïbes.  Nous comptons sur vos prières et espérons que vous serez des nôtres à cette grande fête œcuménique. Nous aimerions que vous invitiez vos paroissiens ainsi que votre entourage à cette célébration. Nous vous prions d'agréer, l'expression de notre profonde dévotion.

As we prepare for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we wish to invite you to join us for this important celebration. This year’s theme and scripture passages have been chosen by the churches of the Caribbean, with the main theme being Exodus 15:6 –  "Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power".  Called as children of one God, we will meet and pray for Christian unity. We would ask you to spread the word about this service, and it is our hope that you, as well as your church members, will attend. We thank you for your prayers and your support, and look forward to seeing you.
