Jan. 20, 2017 - King’s College will commemorate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with a Taizè Prayer Service beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the Chapel of Christ the King, located on the corner of North Franklin and West Jackson Streets. 

The Reverend Janell Wigen, Co-Pastor of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Wilkes-Barre, will reflect on the theme “Reconciliation: The Love of Christ Compels Us.”  This year marks the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a significant moment to heed Christ’s call for the unity of his disciples.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been celebrated for more than 100 years. During this week, churches and communities hold joint worship services, bible studies and other events to promote greater understanding and cooperation among members of different denominations.  The uniqueness of the King’s celebration is marked by the quiet, meditative style of Taizè Prayer.

Parking will be available in on-campus lots. For more information, please contact Rev. Thomas Looney, Director of Campus Ministry and College Chaplain, at (570) 208-5890 or email thomaslooney@kings.edu
