Who makes these resources?

International resources

Every year, Christians from a different host country choose the theme and prepare draft texts for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU). In 2023 these have been prepared by the Minnesota Council of Churches (USA).

The final yearly international WPCU booklet is published by the international ecumenical WPCU team, which is appointed jointly by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches.

Canadian resources

Canadian resources for the 2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by the ecumenical WPCU Writing and Animation Team of volunteers from member churches of The Canadian Council of Churches working in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism, the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism, and the Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada.

For over 40 years, we have been supporting the WPCU celebrations across Canada through publication of additional resources in English and French, maintaining this website, and sharing stories about local WPCU events and ecumenical communities in Canada.
