The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2021 has been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland. The theme that was chosen, “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17 and expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family. Today the community has fifty sisters, all women from different generations, Church traditions, countries and continents. In their diversity the sisters are a living parable of communion. They remain faithful to a life of prayer, life in community and the welcoming of guests. The sisters share the grace of their monastic life with visitors and volunteers who go to Grandchamp for a time of retreat, silence, healing or in search of meaning. For 2021, the sisters are inviting churches across the world to enter into their tradition of prayer and silence that is rooted in the ancient traditions of the Church.

Many Bangladeshis, particularly women, migrate to the Middle East to work. Many of these migrants face exploitation and abuse at the hands of employers and recruitment agents. Find out more about OKUP’s essential work, supported by CAFOD and the EU, to strengthen justice mechanisms for migrant workers and how they are working to end labour trafficking, forced labour and slavery.
