To Be the Church in Dialogue

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Decree on Ecumenism

The Vatican II Decree on Ecumenism was the beginning of the Catholic Church's commitment to the ministry of Christian unity. How has the Decree transformed our perception of each other and of our own churches? What does it mean to be A Church in Dialogue? We will be celebrating the anniversary with an ecumenical service and a day long workshop, November 21 and 22:

Ecumenical Service, Friday November 21 at 7pm. Hosted by the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism, this service will be an opportunity for all Christians to thank God for opening new doors to Christian reconciliation and unity and to pray for the continued vitality of the ecumenical movement in Saskatoon and throughout the world. Location: TBA.

Public workshop: To Be the Church in Dialogue. Saturday, November 22, 9am to 4pm. The churches have been transformed by the ecumenical movement. It is no longer possible to be the church in isolation. We must engage with other Christians, with people of other living faiths, and with the whole world. This workshop will explore the new pastoral letter from the Canadian Catholic bishops on the 50th anniversary of Vatican II's Decree on Ecumenism. There will be a panel on local, national, and international dialogue as well as a session exploring opportunities for common mission and service. Location: TBA.
