Ecumenism as a Peace Movement: The Case of Ukraine

(WTC) - While nations go to war, Christian churches can stand together to witness and work for peace. Cardinal Walter Kasper has called ecumenical dialogue a peace movement because it witnesses to and works for the reconciliation of all people made possible in Jesus Christ. At this event, participants will hear from three leading figures of different churches involved with the citizens, refugees and the grieving of Ukraine. One is the head of a Ukrainian Catholic Community in America (recently interviewed on CNN), another is known as the Peace Bishop for his work in peace-building, and another comes to us directly from Kyiv where he celebrates the eucharist and ministers to the war-torn every day.  Our distinguished moderator, Dr. Sandra Collins, comes from the Byzantine Catholic Seminary in Pittsburgh. Join us IN PERSON for a sung Memorial Prayer Service, presentations, discussion and a reception at the DC Cathedral of the Orthodox Church in America  (or join virtually from afar).  RSVP here

Join us Friday, May 20, 2022, from 7 – 9 p.m. at:

St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral

3500 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20003
