Programming: Vespers at the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Matthew Harrison

January 25, 2008
On the feast of the conversion of St. Paul, Pope Benedict XVI will mark the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with a special ecumenical Vespers service. The Holy Father will preside over the solemn Vespers, which will be held at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.
Salt + Light will broadcast Vespers live on Friday, January 25th, at approximately 11:20am ET, with encore presentations at 3:30pm ET, 8pm ET and midnight, with English and French translation. Salt + Light offers this event with second audio programming, so if when you tune in the language is French, you can switch to the second audio channel which will have English, and vice versa.
Be sure to join the Holy Father in prayer Friday for Christian Unity, and as this year's theme from St. Paul's 1st Letter to the Thessalonians suggests, "Pray without ceasing" (5:17)!
