Ecumenical Chain of Prayer 2019 in Norwich

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally celebrated during the octave of  St Peter & St Paul which runs from 18th to 25th January each year.

As part & in support of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the DEOs of NWCT  organised an Ecumenical Chain of Prayer in St Luke’s Chapel in the Anglican Cathedral in Norwich in 2019 on Thursday 24th January.

We would like to thank everyone who supported this initiative – those who led prayers, those who just dropped by to pray silently, our Ecumenical Canons & the Cathedral – who let us use their beautiful & peaceful chapel.

If you would like to be part of this or would like more information, please contact Catherine Howe (County Ecumenical Officer)

Norwich Capital of Ecumenism

This was the headline in  Osservatore Romano – the official daily bulletin of the Holy See [The Vatican]  following a   report in Catholic East Anglia [East Anglia’s Catholic newspaper] of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit to St John’s Cathedral in Norwich – an unprecedented visit by any primate of the Church of England. It was the Archbishop’s first stop in his 3 day visit to the Diocese of Norwich in November 2018.
