Please join us from 3:00 to 4:00 pm on January 18 – 25 for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.  Christians around the world will be taking part in an octave of prayer for visible Christian unity, to move toward the fulfillment of Jesus' prayer at the Last Supper "that they all may be one."  (cf. John 17:21)
