The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a response to the call to pray for unity – unity among Christians, unity among churches, and unity in the human community. The Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity is January 1 to January 5. These dates are chosen because they represent the feasts of two saints significant to our understanding of Christian unity. January 18 is the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, and January 25 is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity was initiated in 1908, and its observance has changed over the years in accordance with developments in the ecumenical movement.
This Ecumenical Service is open to all neighboring churches. St. Dunstan Episcopal Church is located at 10888 126th Ave. N., Largo.
