Ecumenical Prayer Service in Peterborough

This year marks the 100th year Anniversary of the week of Prayer Christian
Unity with the theme "Pray without Ceasing". A theme chosen from Saint Paul
in his letter to the Thessalonians. One of Paul's central aims was to build
up the community in its unity. Unity is a peace which is not simply the
absence of conflict but a state of harmony in which the gifts of all within
the community contribute to its thriving and growth. Even death does not
break the bonds which unite it as the one body of Christ.

As such we would like to invite you together with your youth and young adult
groups and entire church communities to join us for an ecumenical prayer
service and social on Friday January 25th begining at 7:00pm at St.
Peter-in Chains Cathedral in Peterborough. Please extend the invitation to your entire church community. We invite the youth and young adults of your communities to participate in the service itself through music, readings and reflection to make this truly an ecumenical evening.

The unity we are seeking is a unity for everyone. All are welcome as we join
together for an ecumenical prayer service, fellowship, and celebration of
our Christian faith. Please find attached an invitation and poster with
pertinent information for the evening. We would ask that you RSVP by January
20th 2007 . If you have any questions, or would like to be involved in the
service please contact the VEYO office , (705) 749-0330 or
veyo@peterboroughdiocese.org.

Together we are on the Spirit-led journey, calling us and our churches to
recommit ourselves to pray and strive with our whole being for the unity and
peace willed by God. In this 100th anniversary year, and every year, may all
Christians take to heart the admonition "Pray without ceasing", making real
our quest for Christian unity. I look foward to to the evening as we
continue to we work together in Unity of Prayer!
