LONG LAKE — Six congregations representing four denominations will come together for an Ecumenical Celebration of the Word of God on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The service, which will be held as part of the area’s observance of the Annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, will take place at St. Henry’s Church beginning at 7 p.m.
Rev. Robert Limpert, Priest-in-Charge Adirondack Episcopal Mission will be the speaker at this service.
Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated each year in cities and towns across the country and around the world.
The theme for the 2013 observance is “What Does God Require of Us?” (cf. Micah 6:6-8) The text and theme for each year’s observance are chosen and prepared by representatives of the World Council of Churches and representatives of the Pontifical Council Promoting Christian Unity. The international texts are developed, adapted and published for use in the USA by the Graymoor Ecumenical Interreligious Institute.
The Long Lake service is sponsored by Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Our Lady of Mercy. The public is cordially invited.
