Lord's Prayer in Unison

Posted: March 24 2020 at 11:57 PM

In the face of the worldwide pandemic of the novel coronavirus, Bishop Sally Dyck and the Cabinet calls us to join Christians around the world for a pray in solidarity with an Ecumenical Reciting of the Lord's Prayer on, Wednesday, March 25 at noon. If you are unable to pray at noon, raise your voice in unison with us around the conference again at 6 pm. You may play the video below or follow along with us on our Facebook page.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago invited Bishop Dyck and all United Methodists to participate in this global ecumenical prayer effort after Pope Francis called for “the Heads of the Churches and the leaders of every Christian community, together with all Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the omnipotent God, to recite at the same time the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught us."

The Pope added, "In these trying days, while humanity trembles due to the thread of the pandemic, I would like to propose to all Christians that together we lift our voices towards Heaven.”
