As part of the 2017 edition of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25), the annual prayer service at the Circus takes place on Monday, 23 January, at 7 pm.
Christians from churches all along the French and Italian Rivieras, including St Paul’s Monte-Carlo, join together for the Prayer for Christian Unity celebration, which features readings, prayer, blessings and acts from the 41st International Circus Festival in Monte-Carlo.
Admission is free, and those wishing to attend are advised to arrive early to get a good seat
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a tradition spanning over a hundred years. This year’s theme is “Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us” (2 Corinthians 5:14-20), chosen on the occasion of the 500th anniversary year of the beginnings of the Reformation.
