I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.


As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.


-- John 17:20-21, NRSV

National Workshop on Christian Unity Print
From Monday, April 08 2013
To Thursday, April 11 2013
Every day

In 1963, a group of Roman Catholics, in the context of Vatican II, met to equip local leadership for the task of ecumenical ministry. In 1969, they invited leaders of other Christian communions to join, and today the national ecumenical officers of the churches continue their oversight of the workshop, which is planned by national and local committees. There are both denominational and ecumenical sessions during the workshop.  This is the 41st year of the National Workshop on Christian Unity, which celebrates the spirit of ecumenism by:

 

  • providing meeting seminars for all who are concerned with the ministry of Christian unity: laity, clergy, ecumenical officers, theologians, staff of ecumenical organizations;

  • stimulating an exchange of ideas and experiences among people concerned with Christian unity and the bodies they represent;

  • being a resource and balance between national planning and local responsibility, general ecumenical discussions and particular interchurch conversations, and regional leadership efforts and local realities,

  • encouraging denominational networks to develop and serve as a framework within which they can interact;

  • celebrating the unity which already exists among Christians and searching for ways to overcome the divisions that remain.
