Members of Catholic ecumenical community take up residence at Lambeth Palace

CWN - February 21, 2014

The head of the Anglican Communion has welcomed four members of an ecumenical community as residents of Lambeth Palace.

The invitation “was an amazing surprise for us, and we didn’t hesitate to say yes,” a member of the Community of the Chemin Neuf told Vatican Radio. “We already knew Justin Welby well because of the work he’d already done in Africa on reconciliation, and our community is very present in Africa, so we said yes with great joy.”

Founded by Father Laurent Fabre, SJ, in 1973, the Catholic ecumenical community has both Catholic and non-Catholic members. Two Anglican, one Lutheran, and one Catholic member will be residing at Lambeth Palace.

    The answer has been obvious and clear for centuries: Extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
