The Lay Centre‘s resident community was glad to welcome for the first time Fr. Hyacinthe Destivelle, a French Dominican who is an official at the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity. Fr. Destivelle was a pastor in the Dominican Parish in St. Petersburg, Russia, for many years and now is responsible for promoting dialogue between the Catholic Church and Orthodox churches. By the way, he was invited by one of our Orthodox residents, Fiodar Litvinau. Fr. Destivelle presided the Mass and joined us for supper on our Wednesday community evening. Afterwards, he shared a few thoughts about the current situation of ecumenical dialogue in the world, especially in Eastern Europe.
