  • Ecumenism in the trenches
    We were getting ready to close our church building for a few months for a full interior renovation. The parish had been waiting and preparing for years, and now it was here. We would celebrate Mass in the rectory basement on weekdays and in the school gym on Sundays. We were all set!
  • Solution to a 500-year rift: healthy ecumenism

  • Our relationships with clergy and laity of many traditions engaged in ecumenical Christian unity are all based on modern interpretations of the biblical Scriptures and church traditions.
  • Now in its eighth round, the dialogue between Reformed churches in North America and the Roman Catholic Church has continued for nearly 50 years.
