Vatican, WCC plan annual meetings
December 14, 2010
The Vatican and the World Council of Churches (WCC) have agreed to begin annual meetings to discuss means of ecumenical cooperation.
The new meetings, which will bring WCC leaders together with the officials of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, were set up earlier this month when the secretary-general of the WCC, Rev. Olav Fykse Tvelt, met with Cardinal Kurt Koch, the president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity. During his December 4 visit to the Vatican, the WCC leader had also spoken with Pope Benedict XVI.
