Jerusalem's Christian groups join for ecumenical prayers

CWN - January 07, 2011

Jerusalem will be later than elsewhere in the world, so as not to conflict with the liturgical calendar of the Armenian Orthodox Church, which marks the feast of Epiphany according to the old Julian calendar.

The Catholic, Armenian Orthodox, Lutheran, Syrian Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox, and Anglican communities of Jerusalem will host ecumenical prayer services. The Greek Orthodox Church does not host ecumenical events, but representatives of the other churches will attend a prayer service with the Greek Orthodox monks at the basilica of the Holy Sepulchre.
