Extraordinary Prayer of all Churches

Extraordinary Prayer of all Churches for Reconciliation, Unity and Peace beginning in and proceeding from Jerusalem

I found the above website while checking my news feeds this morning. This was the headline and first paragraph of today's top news post on this website:

Seventh Extraordinary Prayer of all Churches to be held at the Coptic Orthodox Church in Jerusalem 19/10/2011
ON JANUARY 28. 2012, CHRISTIANS ARE INVITED TO JOIN AGAIN IN A GREAT INTERCESSORY PRAYER FOR OUR TIME HELD AT THE COPTIC ORTHODOX CHURCH OF ST. ANTHONY, CLOSE TO THE HOLY SEPULCHRE IN JERUSALEM

With Our Lord’s help, on January 28, 2012, at 5 pm Holy Land time, all Churches will join again via a four continent live broadcast by Christian channels in a great intercessory prayer for Reconciliation, Unity and Peace for our time, beginning from Jerusalem.
The time zone for Jerusalem is UTC/GMT +2:00 and I'm UTC/GMT - 7:00, so that will put me on the road to the Carmelite Monastery for 9:00 Mass during this time of prayer. I usually pray the Rosary on the way to the monastery, so I will pray for the intention of reconciliation, unity and peace for all Churches.
