The World Council of Churches will observe a week of prayer from 22-27 March, one year into the COVID-19 pandemic.

The week will invite a time of prayer and reflection on both the lament and the hope expressed and experienced across the world during what has been a year of unprecedented suffering, but also one when churches have worked together in ever new ways to adapt, respond and accompany communities through mental, physical, economical, spiritual, and environmental crises.  

The week of prayer is convened with WCC member churches and ecumenical partners, and will share prayers and spiritual resources produced in response to the pandemic.

A global online prayer service with participation from the eight WCC regions will be convened on Friday, March 26 beginning 14.00 CET, and a collection of resources will be made available on the WCC website by 18 March 2021, in English, French, German and Spanish.
