ICM Plans Christian Unity Service for January 29th!

January 06, 2012

Each January, Christians throughout the world celebrate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  For 2012, the resource materials for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by a working group of Christians in Poland.  Following extensive discussions, this ecumencial group decided to focus on a theme that is concerned with the trans-formative power of faith in Christ, particularly in relation to our praying for the visible unity of the Church, the Body of Christ.

Inspired by this international ecumenical effort, Inter-Church Ministries is planning its Annual Ecumenical Worship Service for Christian Unity  — to be held on January 29, 2012 at 2:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church of Harborcreek, 6724 Buffalo Road — and featuring guest speaker Sister Mary Ellen Plumb, OSB.  Raised in Harborcreek as a member of Our Lady of Mercy Parish and an alum of St. Benedict Academy, Gannon University and Mercyhurst College, Sister Mary Ellen currently serves on the staff at Villa Maria Academy and is actively involved in her community’s development of ‘Monasteries of the Heart,’ a new ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie.

In Paul’s words to the early Corinthian Church, ‘we will all be changed by the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ!’  As we pray for and strive toward the full visible unity of the church we — and the traditions to which we belong —  will be changed, transformed and conformed to the likeness of Christ.

Let’s come together in Harborcreek on the 29th to sing, celebrate, and pray for Christian Unity!
