You are cordially invited to an International Ecumenical Conference hosted by Holy Cross Monastery:
ONE IN CHRIST: Jubilee Conference
PARABLES OF COMMUNION – JOURNEYING TOGETHER
Wednesday 19 – Saturday 22 October 2016
The key purpose of the Conference is to contribute to reconciliation, through a deepening of mutual understanding and the practice of spiritual ecumenism. In this we are inspired by the contribution of monastic and religious communities, Orthodox, Catholic and Reformed, to intensifying existing friendships in Christ, and signifying the bonds of communion in the Church.
Applications are welcome from consecrated women and men and others, who are interested in exploring the contribution of religious and ecumenical communities to Christian faith, life and witness.
The conference will be hosted by the Benedictine Monks in Rostrevor, whose monastic community itself has become a place of meeting, where Christians are welcomed as Christ, in a spirit of mutual appreciation, true encounter and exchange of gifts.
