Ecumenical gathering at the Centro Pro Unione

IMG_7785The Centro Pro Unione and The Lay Centre hosted yesterday their traditional ecumenical gathering in Piazza Navona for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

This year, the event started with the Celebration of the Word, which was presided by Archbishop David Moxon, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Representative to the Holy See and the director of Rome’s Anglican Centre. The preacher was Rev. Dr. Tim MacQuiban, pastor of Rome’s Ponte Sant’Angelo Methodist Church and director of the Methodist Ecumenical Office.

Rev. Geoffrey Wainwright, professor emeritus of the American Duke University, gave an insightful lecture about dialogue between Methodists and Catholics in the last 50 years, entitled “Methodists and Catholics in Post-Conciliar Dialogue, 1965-2015”.
