Week of Prayer

  • About

    For over a century and around the world, Christians across traditions and denominations have gathered together over the eight days of January 18-25. This “Week of Prayer” creates space for followers of Jesus to join Jesus’ own prayer for their unity, shared so beautifully in the Gospel of John, chapter 17. Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry partners with the Church Council of Greater Seattle and the Archdiocese of Seattle to plan daily Week of Prayer gatherings as well as a regional prayer service each year.
