Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Anchor Prayer Service
January 19 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join together with Christians throughout Boston for the anchor worship service during the 2019 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, hosted by downtown area congregations. This year’s theme is “Justice, Only Justice, You Shall Pursue,” (Deuteronomy 16:20) and this prayer service will focus attention on how we can contribute to acts of unity, justice and mercy in our personal lives and within our communities. Let’s stand together in prayer in the midst of our divisions, witnessing to God’s work of peace and justice!
Partner churches for this worship service include the Cathedral of St Paul, the Paulist Center, and the Church of the Covenant, and we hear word of many other clergy who will be participating. We are inviting clergy to come and process into this worship service together – We’d like to honor you for your ministry in Boston. Our preacher for this gathering is Ylisse Bess Washington, who will be speaking on “Justice, only justice, you shall pursue.” Ylisse earned her Masters of Divinity from Boston University School of Theology in Spring 2017.
All are welcome, and we appreciate your help getting the word out to local congregations. This event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow.
