The University of Notre Dame will host two public events related to ecumenism and the relationships among Christians in the world. 

The first event is an ecumenical prayer service at 7:30 p.m. March 26 (Tuesday) in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The Notre Dame Liturgical Choir will provide music, and members of the local community are invited to attend. Co-presiding ministers at the prayer service will be Christian clergy from the Notre Dame community, and local clergy are invited to attend and vest. Honored guests will include:

  • The Most Rev. Dr. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, Secretary General, Anglican Communion
  • Rev. Dr. Martin Junge, General Secretary, Lutheran World Federation
  • Cardinal Kurt Koch, President, Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity

The second event is a panel discussion titled “From Conflict to Communion: The Future of Christians Together in the World” at 5 p.m. March 28 (Thursday) in the McKenna Hall Auditorium. Panelists will be senior leaders from a variety of Christian traditions, and the discussion will be moderated by Professor Neil Arner of Notre Dame’s Department of Theology.
