ECUMENISM and INTERFAITH ENDEAVOURS
Ongoing interfaith dialogues have revealed vast areas of common action and resulted in the collaboration of churches on a range of social issues.

The chairperson shall:

  • initiate joint prayer services, inviting women of other faiths to council meetings or social events
  • promote awareness of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
  • promote awareness of the World Day of Prayer, observed annually on the first Friday in March
  • dialogue with leaders of Christian communities; in ecumenical dialogue, stress what we have in common rather than what divides
  • celebrate World Union of Catholic Women’s Organization’s WUCWO Day, on May 13th each year, with a recommended prayer service

The chairperson should:

  • obtain information and texts for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity from Novalis and the Canadian Council of Churches
