The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be celebrated around the world January 18 to 25, 2017, on the theme Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us (2 Corinthians 5:14-20). The resources in English and French can be freely downloaded online from the website of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) and print materials may be ordered as well. The theme and biblical text for the 2017 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are chosen by an international joint committee of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. National and regional Councils of Churches adapt the resources for their local context. The resources for Canada were produced by an ecumenical writing team coordinated by the Commission on Faith and Witness of the Canadian Council of Churches, in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism in Montreal and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism in Saskatoon.
