Updates - August 2013
On August 6th members of the Commission met with the County Ecumenical Officer for Herefordshire. It is hoped to develop a greater Catholic presence and involvement with Churches Together in Herefordshire. A forthcoming ecumenical event in Hereford is 'Night of the Churches' on 13th September 2013. The churches in the city of Hereford will be open for the evening, with various activities happening. All welcome. Further details to follow.
Recently, members of the Commission met with the Rev'd Sally Thomas, Ecumenical Officer for the National Synod of Wales, to further the commitment to unity. This was a very successful meeting. It deepened understanding, built up relationships and was mutually encouraging.
At the end of June representatives from the Cardiff Commission for C. U. met with the Commissions from the Diocese of Menevia and the Diocese of Wrexham. Representatives of Cytun were also present.
The Cardiff Commission will soon be producing another edition of its newsletter. If you have any items of ecumenical interest in your parish please forward them through your CU representative or parish priest to the contact details above.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2013
What does God require of us?
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2013 comes to us from an ecumenical group in South India. They have reflected upon their own context and offer to us a theme that calls us to respond to the obligations to act justly in the world.
The text is taken from Micah 6.6-8.
