Ecumenical Service 18 January 2017

Moments from today's Ecumenical Service 'Crossing Barriers' at St Augustine's Church with Rev. Msgr Joseph Attard (Bishop's Delegate), Rev. Fr Adeodato Schembri OSA, Prior of St Augustine's Church and Rev. Clem Upton, SCC, Locum of Anglican Chaplaincy of Malta and Gozo animated by Chorus Urbanus and coordinated by Legion of Mary, Gozo.

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary year of the beginnings of the Reformation, the theme: "Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us" (2 Corinthians 5:14-20) has been chosen as the 2017 theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The materials for the 2017 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has two accents: reflection upon the main concerns of the churches marked by Martin Luther's Reformation and secondly recognizing the pain of the subsequent deep divisions which afflicted the unity of the Church. In selecting this theme, it is viewed as an opportunity to take steps toward reconciliation.
