Nairobi, 19 January, 2022 / 9:36 pm (ACI Africa).
As part of its activities to mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU), the leadership of Kenya-based Tangaza University College (TUC) has planned for an ecumenical prayer service during which the unity of believers is to be emphasized, a Catholic Priest involved in the initiative has told ACI Africa.
Scheduled for Tuesday, January 25, the event that is expected to bring together believers from different Christian denominations seeks to emphasize unity, which Fr. Patrick Mwania has described as the “core of Christian calling."
The upcoming event "is a demonstration that being Christians is not about being by yourself or promoting your specific faith," Fr. Patrick who is at the helm of the Directorate of Catholic Identity, University Mission and Chaplaincy at TUC told ACI Africa Wednesday, January 19.
The unity of the followers of Christ “is important because it shows that we all have a common goal as Christians,” the member of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost Spirit (Spiritans – CSSp.) said, and added, “It is important to unite because that is actually what Christianity is about; not uniting is counter Christianity."
"Uniting is the core of Christian calling," Fr. Mwania emphasized, adding that by fostering unity as followers of Christ, “we are becoming faithful to what we are called to do for the entire humanity and the entire creation.”
