Scottsdale church to host Unity Prayer Service on Jan. 20

St. Apkar Armenian Apostolic Church in Scottsdale is hosting a Unity Prayer Service at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20, as part of a yearly tradition.

As part of a tradition dating back to 1908, the unity prayer was first observed in the chapel of the Atonement Franciscan Convent in upstate New York.

Today, Christian churches and communities around the world share in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity held annually from Jan. 18-25, according to a press release.

St. Apkar Armenian Apostolic Church is located at 8849 E. Cholla St., in Scottsdale. Following the prayer service, a light food and beverage service will be held in Melikian Hall, adjacent to the chapel.
