In keeping with the tradition of observing the unity octave, an 8 day period from 18th to 25th of January each year, a joint worship service has been organized Sunday 21st January 2018 at 4.30 p.m. at the St. Lawrence’s Church, Wellawatte, Colombo 06.
This joint worship Service has been organized by the National Christian Council of Sri Lanka and the Catholic National Commission for Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue, on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church.
The theme for 2018 is taken from the book of Exodus chapter 15, verse 6, Your Right o Lord, glorious in Power, focusing on the contemporary challenges of slavery which threatens the dignity of people around the world. During this period Christians across the world will come together to promote Christian Unity.
