The theme and text for each year's observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are chosen and prepared by representatives of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and representatives of the World Council of Churches. The international texts are developed, adapted and published for use in the USA by the Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute. The GEII invites the collaboration of ecumenical agencies and ecumenists to assist in this project. WPCU resources are printed for ordering by RKG Fund Raising Services Cold Spring, New York. For further information, contact the Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute at the address below.
